White v Town of Orangeville, Stony Creek Wind et.al.

White_v_town_of_orangeville_thumb State Supreme Court Justice Patrick NeMoyer ruled in favor of property owner Robert White, who said the planned wind turbine was too close to his hunting cabin off Bantam Road. The decision nullifies the special use permit and site plan approvals for tower T-28. Judge NeMoyer ruled the planned turbine was improperly sited within 1,320 feet of White’s cabin. He also dismissed Stony Creek LLC’s counterclaim that the cabin is not a dwelling.

They thereafter commenced this action seeking rescission of the contract and money damages stemming from alleged fraud and misrepresentation on the part of defendants in conjunction with the sale. At issue was an order of the Supreme Court denying summary judgment to the defendants. Summary judgment is when the court rules against a party without a trial) to defendants. The court upheld the denial of summary judgment. The ruling can be accessed by clicking the links on this page.
