Lawsuit filed against former architect of Unity school

The Associated Press

NEWPORT (AP) - The Unity School District has sued the former architect of the new elementary school, saying he repeatedly misrepresented the cost of the long-delayed project.

The school opened last fall. The lawsuit says the cost was $4.7 million in 2010, but by the time it was done, it cost twice that much.

The Valley News reported that the lawsuit alleges professional negligence, breach of contract and other charges on the part of Scott Vaughn of Vaughn Associates.

Vaughn, who couldn't be reached to comment, has about a month to file a response. He resigned as construction manager in January 2014. He had told the school board the building size was increased from 28,000 square feet to 34,000 square feet after the initial bond vote, but no additional money was appropriated.
