NORWALK, Conn. — Popular Norwalk land use Attorney Frank Zullo and two of his legal associates are being sued by a Westport woman who alleges that they led a conspiracy to manipulate and take advantage of her elderly mother, stealing more than $2 million in assets.
Attorneys Jeannine W. Chanes and Roland R. Acevedo, of New York City, have filed the lawsuit on behalf of Francine Goodman under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act; the suit also alleges Civil Rights, Property Rights and Rights of Privacy, Family Integrity and Association Violations under 42 U.S.C. § 1985.
Defendants include Norwalk Hospital and Attorney Stephen Keogh, who served on the 2016 Norwalk Charter Revision Commission. They are accused of being part of the alleged resultant conspiracy. Norwalk Hospital is further accused of negligence, of not discovering the elderly woman’s advanced breast cancer during a three-day hospital stay.

NORWALK, Conn. — A groundbreaking is key for The SoNo Collection, and an opening date cannot be estimated until the shovels are in the ground, Doug Adams of GGP said.
Adams, in talking to the Redevelopment Agency last week, said the Planning and Zoning department is reviewing the language in GGP’s easement for its SoNo mall, planned for the former 95/7 property, on West Avenue just south of Interstate 95 (I-95).

NORWALK, Conn. – A “parking lot that has been a detriment for 40 years” prompted concerned Norwalkers to pack a City Hall room Wednesday, only to be a little disappointed that they weren’t learning all that much.
“We want to keep it very simple, we are only here to talk about temporary parking,” Jason Enters of EDG Properties said at the beginning of the Parking Authority’s public meeting on the Main Street Parking Lot, coveted by developer M. F. DiScala and Company, Inc. for its Head of the Harbor North project.
About 40 people packed into a relatively small room for this hearing; Common Council member Steve Serasis (D-District A) endorsed DiScala’s plan, saying the safety improvements are much needed in the “lot that has been a detriment for 40 years,” while a Danna DiElsi of The Silk Touch said her customers would not use the Yankee Doodle Garage and then walk to her store, only to hear Enters, representing DiScala, reply, “As a society, we are unfortunately lazy.” Continue reading DiScala plan sparks parking concerns, while some laud ‘opportunity’ for Wall Street
