Kraft firm can publicly speak to Foxborough board in land dispute

FOXBOROUGH - An increasingly bitter land dispute between the town and its largest taxpayer, The Kraft Group, escalated Tuesday into federal court, where a judge ruled the town must allow Kraft representatives to publicly address the Board of Selectmen.

US District Judge Joseph L. Tauro issued the order Tuesday, in response to a lawsuit filed by the company founded by New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft.
