Nichols v. City of Rehoboth Beach, 836 F.3d 275 (3d Cir. 2016)

Connolly Gallagher attorneys Max B. Walton, Mathew F. Boyer and Arthur (“Chip”) G. Connolly III successfully defended the City of Rehoboth Beach in a challenge to a voting provision authorizing a 52.5 million dollar bond referendum. In the District Court litigation, the case was dismissed on standing grounds. On appeal, the City argued that the doctrine of municipal taxpayer standing did not provide the plaintiff a right to challenge the referendum voting provisions authorized by the City’s charter. The Third Circuit upheld the dismissal of the case and the standing determination of the District Court.
