CALM Golf, Inc. v. Read, et al. (Lawyers Weekly No. 09-055-17)

COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS
PLYMOUTH, ss. SUPERIOR COURT
CIVIL ACTION
NO. 13-01214
CALM GOLF, INC.
vs.
RENE J. READ, IN HIS CAPACITY AS TOWN MANAGER OF THE TOWN OF
DUXBURY, AND ROBERT TROY, ESQ.
MEMORANDUM OF DECISION AND ORDER ON
DEFENDANT’S MOTION FOR SUMMARY JUDGMENT
This action arises out of an award to plaintiff, CALM Golf, Inc.(“Calm”), from the Town
of Duxbury (represented by its Town Manager, Rene Read) (“Duxbury”), to operate the North
Hill Country Club and Golf Course (“North Hill”).1 Calm alleges that Duxbury is liable to it for
breach of contract (Count I), violation of Chapter 93A (Count IV), and violation of the
Massachusetts Public Bidding Statute, G. L. 30(b) (Count VI).
Before the Court is Duxbury’s motion for summary judgment. A proper review of the
record shows that the core facts are largely undisputed. It also shows that this case boils down to
two simple, controlling propositions. First, did Duxbury’s award to Calm equate to a contract,
either express or implied? Second, was Duxbury required to conclude a formal contract with
Calm despite the fact that, as the result of litigation brought by a disappointed bidder – the thenextant
manager of North Hill, Johnson Golf Management, Inc. (“Johnson) – this Court ordered
Duxbury not to contract with Calm but rather to continue its contract with Johnson? read more

Police: Attempted Robbery at Washington Street Bank Failed When Teller Couldn’t Read Note

Boston Police Department

The following information was supplied by the Boston Police Department. Charges do not indicate a conviction. 

An attempted bank robbery at the Mount Washington Bank on Saturday morning failed when the suspect handed the teller a reportedly illegible note, called her “stupid” for not being able to read it, and left. 

Boston Police responded to a robbery in progress at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the Mount Washington Bank at 1134 Washington St.

One of the bank’s tellers told police that just before 11 a.m., a suspect had attempted to rob the bank. The employee told officers that the suspect handed her a note. The employee was unable to determine the exact wording of the note, but was able to read the word “shoot.”

The suspect then stated, “Give me the money or I’ll shoot you.”

The employee told officers that she was confused at first and asked the suspect to repeat what he had said. The suspect then told the employee, “You are stupid.” He then took the note, and left the bank. read more
