On February 2, 2006, Attorney Joe Kubic appeared in front of the state’s highest court, in the matter of Manuel Moutinho, et al. v. Bridgeport Planning and Zoning Commission, et al., arguing that a zoning applicant who lacks a written agreement permitting it to use a particular parcel of property, and who does not currently own or occupy the property, nonetheless has standing to appeal where he was found by the trial court to be statutorily aggrieved. Attorney Kubic also argued that the trial court was incorrect in finding that the record owner of the property, who had given the applicant permission and approval to apply to the zoning board, was not an applicant for purposes of appeal. The Supreme Court took the appeal directly from the superior court, and a decision is currently pending.
