Jury finds East Hampton Town responsible for erosion damage in homeowner suit
A federal jury ruled that the town of East Hampton Town is responsible for the erosion damage to many private properties, in a case brought against the town by homeowners. Homeowners sued the town and other government agencies over jetties built in the 1920s that they said interrupted the natural flow of sand along the Block Island Sound allowing storms in 2011 and 2012 to erase the natural shoreline by their properties, 27East reported. U.S. District Court Judge Joanna Seybert will now determine what the town must do to reconcile the problem. [27East]
