NARRAGANSETT â€“ The Supreme Court ruled Friday that the house built on the wrong lot on Ocean Road must be removed.
The Supreme Court affirmed Washington County Superior Court Justice Brian Sternâ€™s September 2012 ruling that the home, located at 1444 Ocean Road, constituted a â€ścontinuing trespassâ€ť on neighboring property owned by the Rose Nulman Park Foundation.
In a decision written by Associate Justice Gilbert V. Indeglia, the justices concluded that Stern did not err in his 2012 ruling, and that it would be â€śan unjust result to order the transfer of title to a portion of the Nulman property to [Robert C. Lamoureux, owner of 1444 Ocean Road] â€¦â€ť
The justices also considered the public interest in maintaining the land as a park.
â€śThis clear commitment of the landâ€™s use as community space satisfies us that any attempt to build on even a portion of the property would constitute an irreparable injury, not only to the plaintiff, but to the public,â€ť Indeglia wrote.
