Bedfordshire Lawsuit


Background

The Trustees of Bedfordshire Condominiums in Bedford MA filed a complaint against Unit Owner Barry Kort in a long-standing dispute over assessments for a Golf Course which the Trustees had constructed upon an Open Space on Condominium land and upon an adjacent Conservation Area on publicly owned Wetlands.

Bedfordshire Condominiums are located along the flowage of the Shawsheen River in Bedford Massachussets. The land alongside the river include Wetlands and Conservation Lands owned by the Town of Bedford and protected by the Bedford Conservation ByLaws and by the Wetlands Protection Act. Some Unit Owners decided to build a golf course on this land, and did so without notification to the Town, without approval from the Planning Board and Conservation Commission, and without approval of the remaining Unit Owners. The Trustees of Bedfordshire then assumed the cost of maintaining the golf course and rolled the expenses into the annual budget.

I protested the invasion and conversion of the Wetlands and Conservation Lands for the construction of an unapproved golf course, and refused to pay for it. The Trustees then filed a lawsuit in Middlesex Superior Court, seeking an order to sell my condo. I counter-sued the Trustees, alleging willful breach of trust and exceeding their lawful authority.
