Voters Sue Keene School District
After the Deliberative Session, voter Darryl W. Perry, was directed to the 2011 Rockingham Superior Court decision in the case of Bailey v. Town of Exeter. In Bailey, the Court ruled, “the only way the phrase 'no warrant article shall be amended to eliminate the subject matter of the article' can logically be read is to conclude that any amendment that made the subject matter of the article a nullity was forbidden,” adding that “[m]erely because the majority of the voters were more clever in the way the amendment was worded to create the nullity does not mean their action was not a violation of the statute.”
Perry, Salada and two other voters (David Crawford and Eric LaRoche) have filed suit on Feb 19th against the School District due to the illegal actions at the Deliberative Session that have disenfranchised the voters of Keene, including petitioners. The filing can be read here. The Cheshire superior court will hold an initial emergency hearing of the case on 2/28 at 11am due to the short timeframe remaining prior to the school board election.
