- CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, December 1 - Monday, December 4, 2006 Continued from page 3 Courtroom battle continues; parties seek judgment The Cape Henlopen Taxpayers for Fair Elections and the Cape Henlopen School District Board of Education hope to walk away with a final victory following the Court of Chancery hearing sched- uled for 10 a.m., Wednesday, Dec. 20, in Dover before Vice Chancellor John W. Noble. In the aftermath of failed settlement negoti- NOBLE ations, both sides filed motions during October asking the court to enter judgment in their favor Without requiring a full trial. The taxpayers claim they should win because the school board predetermined what architect and construc- tion management firms they would hire and hired them without following legal require- ments, in a way that deceix, ed the public. The school board claims it should win because any technical noncompliance was inadvertent, it did no intentional wrong, and the taxpayers failed to diligently pursue their claims as plans and work on the new Cape Henlopen High School proceeded at an expedited pace. The parties last appeared for a Court of Chancery hearing on July 25, 2006.
