Stockbridge swamped with 4 lawsuits, driving up demands on budget

STOCKBRIDGE — With four lawsuits potentially on the table, the town is beefing up its legal budget.

The town is presently facing litigation from three parties. The Stockbridge Bowl Association is suing about the use of herbicides, and may be filing another lawsuit. Another party is filing a suit over the denial of a driveway.

And then there’s Select Board member Ernest “Chuckie” Cardillo and attorney Robert Fuster Sr., who intend to file a lawsuit over the way Cardillo was fired as the town’s fire chief.

The town’s litigation fund will be increased from $50,000 to $100,000 under the budget for fiscal year 2020.
