State Rep. Michael Sylvia claims in court filings that the town he represents has questioned his honesty.
Last August, the town of Belmont filed a civil suit against the Republican lawmaker alleging land use violations at his 216 Farrarville Road property.
Sylvia, who chairs the Belknap County legislative delegation, is asking a judge to dismiss the case, award him legal costs and order that “an apology be made to the defendant for calling into question his honesty.”
A hearing is Wednesday in Belknap County Superior Court at 9 a.m.
