An unpublished Connecticut Superior Court
opinion takes an odd approach to a conflict of interest charge against
of a zoning commission in the small town of Pomfret (pop. 4,000). Not
only is it odd, but it could very well be unconstitutional, as it
its decision on whether individuals have spoken out for or against a
matter before the zoning commission. My thanks go to Patricia Salkin,
wrote about the decision in her excellent Law of the Land blog
sent me a copy of the decision.
