Court orders electricity back on at Epsom campground

EPSOM - The electricity is back on at a foreclosed campground.
The Concord Monitor reports that more than a dozen families have been living at the Circle 9 Ranch Campground since October, when a sale of the property fell through. The bank that took over had the power cut off on Tuesday, but a court made an emergency ruling to restore electricity on Thursday.
Elliott Barry, an attorney with New Hampshire Legal Assistance, says the campers are considered "tenants of sufferance" - one step up from trespassers - but the state's courts have said it's illegal to cut off electricity in such situations.
