Towns Lose Temporary Injunction

The towns of Sandown and Danville lost their request in court for a temporary injunction against the Timberlane Regional School District. The injunction was based on the “No Means No” law and the Right-to-Know Law. The judge ruled that as towns they did not have standing to sue, but also ruled that they were not likely to prevail on either the “No Means No” law nor the Right-to-Know Law. The Right-to-Know ruling was based on the request to prohibit use of a building was “grossly inappropriate” when balanced against the potential impact to the students and their families only a few weeks before school starts. The parties were ordered to file briefs on whether the towns have standing before the court issues a final order. The full order is available here.
