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 Sternâs September 2012 ruling that the home, located at 1444 Ocean Road, constituted a âcontinuing trespassâ 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 âan unjust result to order the transfer of title to a portion of the Nulman property to [Robert C. Lamoureux, owner of 1444 Ocean Road] âŠâ
The justices also considered the public interest in maintaining the land as a park.
âThis clear commitment of the landâs 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 Indeglia wrote.
