New Twists in Sullivan Courthouse, Harbor Garage Sagas

EAST CAMBRIDGE—There is another plot twist in one of the region's longest-running development soap operas: "The city, state, real estate developers Leggat McCall Partners and five local residents and neighbors have agreed to settle the outstanding claims in a lawsuit about redevelopment of the former Edward J. Sullivan Courthouse in East Cambridge. The settlement means the lead plaintiff, Michael Hawley, will be able to pursue an appeal of the Land Court's May 19 decision in the Massachusetts Appeals Court." [Day]

WATERFRONT—Apparently, there is radio silence from one side of the seemingly ceaseless Harbor Garage brouhaha: "Walsh isn't worried. 'We all have concerns,' he said, adding that the city planning process is ongoing. 'I am a firm believer we can get to yes.' I reached out to Chiofaro to see if he would tell me what's on his mind. He isn't ready to talk. The guy has gone from Mr. Chatterbox to a monk who has taken a vow of silence." [Globe]
