Today I got an update on how much the Town has spent to date this fiscal year on the RIB lawsuit. As of their last billing on June 14, the total is about $230,000. The town has budgeted $500,000 through December 31.
The way both sides have been burning the midnight oil on motions, objections, and supplemental filings, I have to wonder how long the remaining $270,000 will last. Our attorneys must have sensed that this would happen because they postponed the actual trial until next fiscal year when some fresh money could be available.
There’s more than one way to skin a cat, and WP’s attorneys know that the citizens of Wolfeboro will be hard pressed to put up another million to finance a trial. It may be hard to determine which party will prevail, but the attorneys always win.
