Lobstermen Justin and Travis Maderia plan to sue Stonington officials over fire that sank their boat

Two brothers whose lobster boat was destroyed by fire at the Town Dock last November have informed the town they intend to sue a long list of municipal employees and officials because of the damage to their business. These include damages to business equipment and personal property, lost business opportunities and personal damages. Mystic attorney Michael Hardesty, who represents well-known local lobstermen Justin and Travis Maderia and their business Lindy Inc., served the town with the notice on Tuesday. The 43-foot Lindy Inc. burned and sank at the Town Dock during the early morning hours of Nov. 11, 2015, and was raised a few days later. The fire, which also damaged another boat tied to the Lindy, as well as some of the dock’s pilings and decking, remains under investigation by police and the state fire marshal.
