Texas resort developer Silverleaf Resorts, Inc. persuaded the Massachusetts Land Court to issue a temporary injunction against Berkshire Wind Power Cooperative Corp.‘s use of part of a road crossing its private property, prompting the wind developer to suspend its $43 million wind project on Brodie Mountain.  Abutter Silverleaf claimed completion of the wind project would prevent it from using its property for its intended purpose — a high priced resort.  This is part of an ongoing dispute between the Massachusetts wind developer and the Texas resort developer at this Massachusetts location.
