Law Court Affirms B&I Trial Court Victory


Peter Brann and Michael Carey prevailed today in the Law Court, Maine’s highest court, on an appeal concerning a class action lawsuit challenging a probate judge’s scheduling decisions on constitutional grounds. Brann and Carey took over the defense just prior to trial and won despite findings by the trial judge that the probate judge knew the scheduling changes would cause or exacerbate some delays that would harm litigants, and were made in response to the denial by the County Commissioners of the probate judge’s request for increases in court time and salary. The Law Court affirmed the lower court’s decision that the probate judge had not violated the constitutional rights of the class members.

The case is LeGrand v. York County Judge of Probate, 2017 ME 267.
