Print More

The Vermont Supreme Court has handed the town of Rockingham another victory in the long-running legal battle over the value of the Bellows Falls dam. U.S. Gen New England, which owns the hydro-electric station, has repeatedly challenged the town’s tax appraisal that the dam is worth about $90 million.

In an appeal to the Supreme Court from a ruling from Windham Superior Judge John Wesley, the company said Wesley erred in allowing the testimony of an expert witness. The high court ruled that the judge did not violate his discretion in allowing the testimony to be presented in the trial.
