Lawyers from the HEADstrong Foundation, Swarthmore Borough, and appellant neighbors met at the Delaware County Courthouse in Media on Thursday, August 3, to settle the appeal of Borough Council’s approval of accommodations to allow HEADstrong’s Swarthmore residence.
After a brief meeting in the chambers, Judge Spiros E. Angelos postponed the hearing until August 24, before which an undisclosed personal matter would need to be resolved. Although lawyers will discuss the matter individually with their clients, no further briefs will be filed.
The anticipated hearing attracted a small audience. Six HEADstrong supporters were in attendance, including Cheryl Colleluori, mother of HEADstrong’s founder, Nicholas Colleluori. Two other borough residents were in the crowd. The dispute, which has been a long and emotional battle for all sides of the community, will continue at least another three weeks.
