The court just posted the verdict. Wolfeboro prevailed on all five counts. The jury awarded damages in the amount of $6,795,000.
As I understand it, count 5, the violation of the consumer protection act was an advisory verdict by the jury and the court makes the final determination as to the standard of law and multiple damages. I don’t know when that will happen, but the damage amount can double or triple based on the decision of the court, and probably will award attorney and other costs.
I’ll post that decision when it becomes available, but I think it requires reconciling the facts submitted by the parties and may take a few days to rule on.
So far this is Great news for the Taxpayers and the sewer users…….oh but wait…..if under RSA 358A
the Judge awards double or triple damages …….would/could W/P rather than appeal…….file for
Bankruptcy and then reorginize? Would not spend the money yet..guess we have a long way to go.
I think that’s …when under RSA 358A – not if.
We are both way out of our league to speculate on where this will go. But don’t confuse winning the lawsuit with solving the town’s disposal problem. For sure a big bag of money makes it easier, if that’s how it ends.
