Lawsuit over bird sanctuary at Deer Lake will go forward, regardless who owns it

KILLINGWORTH — No matter of who ends up buying Deer Lake, a new lawsuit versus the Boy Scouts will go on and could be an albatross to the property’s new proprietor.

And which is even if the conservationist-backed Pathfinders get Deer Lake. The area Scout group submitted a “competitive” bid for the home over the weekend, in hopes of protecting against it from remaining bought to developer Margaret Streicker, who sits on the board of the Connecticut Yankee Council.

A lawsuit submitted past 7 days in Middlesex Remarkable Courtroom by Madison resident David Stephenson, who needs to safeguard The Richard English Chook Sanctuary there, will go on as planned, according his attorney, Keith Ainsworth.
