Connolly Gallagher Wins Third Circuit Appeal On Behalf of the City of Rehoboth Beach
On September 7, 2016, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals issued a decision in the case of Nichols v. City of Rehoboth Beach, — F.3d –, 2016 WL 4651383 (3d Cir. Sept. 7, 2016), upholding a dismissal of the case by the District Court. Rejecting the notion that the doctrine of municipal taxpayer standing allows Plaintiff to challenge voting provisions in the City’s Charter that were used to authorize a 52.5 million dollar bond issuance, the Third Circuit ruled that Plaintiff lacked standing. Connolly Gallagher attorneys Max B. Walton, Mathew F. Boyer, Arthur (“Chip”) G. Connolly III, and Ryan P. Newell represented the City in the District Court and on appeal.
