Legal settlement reached for residents of 2411 New St. condo

2411 New St. condo

Lawyers for the City of Burlington’s insurer and four other defendants have settled the litigation case involving residents living in the 2411 New St. condo, ongoing since 2011.

For background on the case, see a previous blog post from 2016 and a more recent article from InsideHalton.com.

The total settlement amount for the residents involved was $2 million and does not include any admission of liability on behalf of any of the defendants.

Lawyers representing all parties are currently finalizing the documentation needed to end the litigation. The six-to-eight-week trial that was set to start in January will no longer happen as a settlement was reached.

MY TAKE:

This settlement brings closure to a long and difficult chapter for the residents of 2411 New St. I’m thankful to all parties for working together to reach a settlement, so everyone can now move forward.

What's your take?

Here are guidelines before you comment, and our expectations before we will post:

  • Be civil. Would you speak this way to a good friend? If not, rewrite.
  • Focus on the issues. Build your argument and make your case in support of your opinion from facts, research or other sources. That way we can all learn. “I disagree with so-and-so because…” is fine; “So-and-so is naïve/stupid  for thinking the way he/she does and here’s why…” is not acceptable.
  • Don’t make personal attacks. Don’t assume motives of those you disagree with, make unfounded allegations, spread rumours, or engage in any other behaviours that would discourage you from participating if someone said this to, or about, you. The Golden Rule applies: Do unto others as you would have done to you. We will edit or not post comments with this type of content.
  • Say it once: When comments from the same individual or individuals become repetitive, going over ground already stated, we reserve the right to close commenting.
  • Use your full, and real, name. If wish to make a comment in public, we expect you will publicly stand behind it with your name. If you don’t want to publicly reveal your name, that’s fine; you are always welcome to share your thoughts with me privately via my email below. I welcome and consider all feedback in making decisions for the community.
  • Have fun, consider and learn. Share your views and read those of others. May we all benefit from a healthy exchange of ideas, and learn a little more about the people in our community, what you think, and what’s important to each of you. You may end up changing your mind about an issue; even if you don’t, we hope everyone will gain a greater understanding of why people have different perspectives.
