An affiliate of Bozzuto, the real estate firm overseeing The Abby residential complex in North Quincy, is suing ICON Architecture over alleged design errors that cost the firm more than $3 million in damages (BBJ)

  • The complex opened in 2021 with more than 600 units, a Target and a seven-story parking garage.
  • Boston-based ICON "disagrees completely" with Bozzuto's allegations, the company president said.

A federal appeals court dismissed a lawsuit by the sister of Justin Root, the man killed by police outside Brigham and Women's Hospital in 2020. (UHub)

  • The court ruled the officers had reason to fear for their lives and the safety of others partly because Root had pulled out what appeared to be a gun.
  • Root was shot 31 times in 3 seconds by Boston and state police.
