State Appellate Court Rules in Client’s Favor Appellate Court.  BoneeWeintraub represented a car dealership that was leasing a property from an owner who owed nearly $1,000,000 in back taxes to the town. In addition, the property was contaminated and the owner refused to clean up the property. The town tried to collect back taxes from the dealership because they had stopped paying rent to the owner in 2000. The court upheld BoneeWeintraub’s position and the town was prohibited from requiring their client to pay the back taxes. Canton v. Cadle: 145 Conn. App. 438. Attorneys Eric Rothauser | Jay Weintraub
