Court decision gives taxpayers standing to sue on default budgets

I’m proud to report that Attorney Richard Lehmann successfully argued that a New Hampshire taxpayer had standing to sue over a default budget in his town.  Not only did the judge grant standing but also ruled that the town’s default budget had to be reduced based on the arguments.  Mr. Lehmann’s client was Neal Kurk, Chairman of the House Finance Committee, representing Weare.

This is a momentous decision and is the thin edge of the wedge in helping taxpayers regain their standing to demand their towns and school districts actually follow the law.
