State Rep. Michael Sylvia told a superior court judge Wednesday that if the case regarding his use of a converted garage as a residence proceeds to trial as scheduled this summer, he will argue that the suit the town of Belmont has filed against him is baseless.
At a 15-minute hearing in Belknap Superior Court on the status of the seven-month-old case, Sylvia told Judge James D. O’Neill III said that none of the ways he has used his property at 216 Farrarville Road is illegal.
Sylvia, who is acting as his own attorney, told the judge, “I can prove the town’s claim is without merit. … The suit was unnecessary.”
