Though there have been a few news stories about it, many people are still under the false impression that Memorial Boulevard School can't be sold because of strings attached by industrialist Albert Rockwell, who deeded the property to the city and oversaw construction of the building.
Late in 2011, the city agreed to sue Attorney General George Jepsen as part of an orchestrated legal move to clear up any questions surrounding the deed. The attorney general enforces the terms of old trusts and wills.
A stipulated agreement settled the case immediately and granted the city the right to do whatever it wanted with the building.
Lawyers said there's no legal grounds to challenge the move.
