We have retained the Boston law firm of Hemenway and Barnes. They are experienced with Avalon Bay, having opposed them in other cases.

Avalon Bay's stragey has been to run up our costs so we will quit. Legal fees have already exceeded $117,000. If the case goes to trial in Land Court in October, 2002, as appears likely, costs may exceed $50,000. Our case is strong on many fronts, but we must raise funds to continue the fight or they could win by default. We are thankful to the Bedford residents who have already contributed to the legal defense, thus enabling us to make the progress we have.
