Case 4

Bolduc et al v. Massachusetts Department of Transportation


This case involved land acquired for the relocation of Route 79 in Lakeville, Massachusetts. The Department of Transportation took land and argued to the jury that the landowner benefitted by the project.


Attorney Maciolek argued for the Plaintiff that the land that was taken was the most important section of the landowner's property and that the commercial use of the property after the taking was restricted.


The jury returned a verdict in favor of the landowner for the sum of $350,000.


Verdict returned: January 22, 2013
