Judge rules against ex-architect in countersuit over NH Unity elementary school

The Associated Press

CONCORD (AP) — A federal judge has rejected the claims of a former Unity elementary school architect who countersued the district seeking $800,000 in unpaid services.

The district sued Scott Vaughn for $2.7 million last March over the cost of the long-delayed project. Vaughn countersued, accusing the district of breaching its contract.

The Valley News reports the judge rejected Vaughn's claims that the town and the district share some responsibility for the cost and delays.

The district hired Vaughn in 2010 after a $4.7 million bond for a new school passed. The school opened in September 2014, two years behind schedule. The cost grew to nearly $9 million.

The district's lawsuit accusing Vaughn of professional negligence, breach of contract and other charges is headed for mediation.

He has denied the charges.
