Westfarms' Owners Agree To $34 Million Settlement With Blue BackThe Harford Courant
WEST HARTFORD — - The owners of Blue Back Square are getting $34 million in compensation for lost revenue, increased financing costs and other losses as a result of the yearlong construction delay caused by a blizzard of 11 anti-Blue Back lawsuits bankrolled by a retail competitor.
Taubman Centers Inc., the corporate parent of Westfarms mall and the mall's majority owner, agreed in an out-of-court settlement last week to pay its $26.8 million share of the money by today.

The negotiated settlement — Blue Back lawyers were seeking more than $40 million — resolves Blue Back's 2007 lawsuit seeking damages. There is no admission of liability or fault in the settlement by Taubman, which owns 79 percent of the mall, or its four Westfarms partners, who own 21 percent.
The settlement money is being split by the private developers of Blue Back: Raymond Road Associates, BBS Development LLC and Blue Back Square LLC.
The lawsuits postponed Blue Back construction, resulting in a 2007 opening, just as the national economy began to shrivel.
