Board members say that withdrawing the litigation would only result in the state suing the town

Littleton— As more residents push the Select Board to drop its lawsuit against Littleton Water and Light, board members say that withdrawing the litigation would only result in the state suing the town, and with no end to legal fees. During their meeting on Sept. 12, board members said they remain in a holding pattern as the court considers a motion for summary judgment from the New Hampshire Department of Revenue Administration, which is asking the court to require that LWL comply with the Municipal Budget Act and declare LWL a department of the town, as well as a cross-motion for summary judgment filed by LWL. After those issues are resolved, the members of the Select Board said they will be in a better position to make a decision.
