The company, Long Brook Station, and its principal owner Joseph Regenburger, have been associated with convicted mobster Gus Curio, The Post said.

Although state Superior Court Judge Dale Radcliffe ruled in favor of the development company, he denied its request for two freestanding buildings, allowing only one with 45 apartments.

The case was unusual, because the plaintiff was the Town of Stratford and the defendant was the town’s Zoning Board because the town had approved the project, while the Zoning Board had denied it, added the Post.

The Zoning Board had denied the application because the police headquarters has had problems with flooding from the nearby Long Brook stream, the Post said.
