Judge Myers rules Burtons must repay Rookwood Partners

The Enquirer is reporting that Judge Beth Myers ruled today that the Burtons, one of the two remaining holdons at the Rookwood Exchange site, “must repay the developer, Rookwood Partners, $96,062 before receiving compensation for any damage to the building the developer is responsible for…and the amount of money the developer must pay will be determined after a court hearing concerning compensation. No date has been set for the hearing.”

9/26/07 UPDATE: Today’s Enquirer edition features quotes from Norwood attorney Tim Burke and the Burton’s Institute for Justice attorney Burt Gall. Each claims Judge Myers’ ruling was a victory for his side. As is often the case in articles about this dispute, there are no quotes from any of Rookwood Partners’ attorneys.
