Union Leader: Littleton Man Fights Town Over Records
The Union Leader reports a Littleton businessman fighting with the town over a right-to-know request is likely to take his case to the state’s Supreme Court.
Here’s part of the Union Leader’s story:
“Littleton pizza shop owner Demetrios “Jim” Sourgiadakis alleges he was one of 13 merchants police officers and their union targeted for boycott last spring in a dispute over the proposed annual town budget.
“Sourgiadakis, owner of Gold House of Pizza, sued the town, seeking records of communications between police and the union, the New Hampshire State Employees Association.”
The newspaper reports in September a superior court judge in Grafton Country ruled Sourgiadakis would have to pay the estimated cost of $4,100 to collect the information. That prompted consideration of the appeal.
