At a court date Friday in the federal lawsuit brought against the town of New Castle by the owners of Chappaqua Crossing, the former Reader’s Digest property, the haggling continued over the exchange of documents. The judge extended the discovery deadline, when all documents are supposed to be turned over, to April 20, said John Walsh, a lawyer for the town.
The two sides must also work out a confidentiality agreement for the documents of SG Chappaqua, the owner, Walsh said. The judge has asked for it to be submitted next week.
SG Chappaqua, the entity created by Summit Development and Greenfield Partners to buy the 116-acre corporate park in Chappaqua, sued the town in February 2011, accusing the Town Board of conducting a sham approval process designed to prevent any development. The owners had plans to build 199 condos and townhouses next to the corporate buildings but the town approved 111 units in April 2011.
