Holt v. Town of Stonington: Holt sought equitable relief to prevent the Town of Stonington from denying her the ability to build on her privately owned lot of land. The district court granted injunction to Holt. Holt purchased the land in question with the advisory opinion of a zoning officer stating Holt would be approved to build a single-family residence on the property. However, this initial understanding was later overturned based on 1981 alterations to the property, involving the sale of a small section of the property. Consequently, Holt filed a federal appeal. According to Connecticut law, a plaintiff must first exhaust available and adequate administrative remedies before receiving judicial relief in a zoning dispute. Circuit court found Holt did not exhaust these options, and thus the district court lacked jurisdiction to rule in this dispute.
