Lawsuit: Owner of Laurel Road Properties Appeals Assessments

The China-based owner of two contiguous Laurel Road parcels last week appealed the town’s decision to uphold its assessment of the properties. Completed during October’s revaluation, the assessments of 360 and 364 Laurel Road are “grossly excessive, disproportionate and unlawful,” according to a lawsuit filed May 14 in state Superior Court by attorney Aldo Pascarella of the Greenwich-based Pascarella Law Firm PC. 

The Town Clerk received the complaints May 10. According to tax records, 360 Laurel Road is a two-acre property that includes a 2004-built Colonial. It was assessed at about $1.8 million. And 364 Laurel Road is a 4.43-acre property that includes a 1942-built, 9,000-square-foot home.
