of the property (Special Permit Decision).

A one-day trial was held on August 16, 2016, in Berkshire County. A decision of todays date has
issued. In accordance with that decision, it is hereby

ORDERED and ADJUDGED Barney Edmonds, Julie Edmonds, Richard Grausman and Susan
Grausman, all of whom were original plaintiffs and joined in the original complaint and participated
throughout, but who failed to appear and participate at trial, hereby are defaulted; and it is hereby

ORDERED, ADJUDGED and DECLARED that the Special Permit Decision issued by
the Lenox Zoning Board of Appeals to Front Yard, LLC, is hereby AFFIRMED; and it is further

ORDERED and ADJUDGED that the complaint is DISMISSED, with prejudice.
