View Comments ()



    On Tuesday, a judge denied a request by the town of Rocky Hill for a temporary restraining order against the owner and operator of a state funded nursing home for prison inmates and mental patients.

    According to Rocky Hill Mayor Anthony LaRosa, the judge must now rule on a motion made by the facility owner and operator to dismiss a lawsuit filed by the town.

    State officials have plans to open a 95-bed facility at 60 West St. The facility would house terminally ill, extremely sick and mentally ill prison inmates.
