LAURENCE N. WESSON et al. v. TOWN OF BREMEN

PER CURIAM

	Laurence and John Wesson, Trustees of the Laurence G. Wesson and
Eleanor R. Wesson Irrevocable Trust, appeal from a judgment entered in the
Superior Court (Kennebec County, Studstrup, J.) affirming a decision of the
State Board of Property Tax Review denying their request for an abatement. 
The Wessons contend that they are entitled to an abatement because the
Trust land was substantially overvalued and because the assessors of the
Town of Bremen used a discriminatory valuation method.  Because the Court
is evenly divided, we affirm the judgment.
	The entry is
			Judgment affirmed.
