ABSTRACT
The article reports on the ruling of the Vermont Supreme Court that a homeowner can enforce a restrictive covenant barring construction of structures that block the view of Mount Mansfield. The court said that an earlier declamatory judgment invalidating the subdivision's general covenants had no effect on the restriction. The case was filed by the Cupola Golf Course Inc. against John and Sandra Dooley, seeking to resolve the status of the restrictive covenant on their lot. It involves a declaratory judgment which adjudicates specific rights and liabilities of the parties.
