2. The Court ruled in favor of Jones-Carroll or Sealand and a trial is next.
The Court explicitly denied the Town’s core argument that Jones/Sealand three remaining claims had been “finally determined”, and that the Town won. As the court said, “that contention lacks merit” and “that position did not prevail”.
First, remember, the original lawsuit was brought by Jones-Carroll, Inc, while Sealand was awarded intervenor status. The Court dismissed Sealand’s claims for a regulatory taking and substantive due process violation because Sealand does not own the property. Jones-Carroll remains a plaintiff and does have a vested property interest so the regulatory taking and substantive due process violation claim against the Town remains valid.
The Court left Jones/Sealand’s third cause of action for invalidation of the law intact, and reinstated Sealands' claim of ethical violations by the Town board.
Therefore, all of Jones’ claims will go to trial, along with Sealand’s Third Cause of Action that the “2007 Law is unreasonable, arbitrary and capricious,” including the claim that a Town board member had a conflict of interest and committed ethical violations.
