Water Dispute To Hit Land In New Hampshire Court

It doesn't happen too often. But a Rhode Island lawsuit over a pond will be decided in New Hampshire.

Federal judges in Rhode Island are recusing themselves from hearing a lawsuit filed over the Johnson's Pond water usage controversy in Coventry.

Soscia Holdings is suing the Rhode Island government for a new law which requires owners of dams to get state permission to adjust water levels.

The federal lawsuit is being moved to New Hampshire because the three Rhode Island judges know people that live near the pond.

A temporary restraining order against the new law that was filed by Soscia last month was rejected.
