Little Neck rift may yet reach trial

Settlement challenged by group of residents

Residents opposed to a $32.5 million settlement that allows the sale of Little Neck, a summer cottage colony owned by a Colonial-era land trust set up to benefit the Ipswich public schools, have asked a probate court judge to block the agreement, saying it does not do enough to protect public school children.

A motion filed in Essex Probate Court in Salem, where a trial to determine if Little Neck could be sold began Dec. 12, also seeks to have the trial continue and for residents, led by Douglas J. DeAngelis, to be allowed to take part as defendants.
