FRAMINGHAM – Framingham attorney Chris Petrini won his case against the City of Worcester on behalf of the Town of Holden this week.
On August 4, 2022, after more than nine years of litigation and an eight-day jury trial, a Worcester Superior Court jury issued a verdict awarding the Town of Holden $14.6 million against the City of Worcester for excessive wastewater transport charges imposed on Holden.
The jury further found that the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation had breached its contract with the Town of Holden to charge only for proportionate applicable transport costs but awarded no damages on this count, said a press release.
“The Town deeply appreciates the efforts of Superior Court Judge James Manitsas and the careful
attention to and review of the evidence by the jury over the course of the trial. The Town would
like to express its appreciation to Special Counsel Christopher J. Petrini of Petrini & Associates
in Framingham for his ongoing representation of Holden at trial and throughout the course of
this case,” said the Town in a press release.
