Long-standing dispute over JPA coverage settles in favor of defendant JPA

After nearly ten years of litigation and repeated successes at both the state and federal level, in September of 2013 our attorneys, led by Bob Baker, finally brought to an end the longstanding dispute between an elementary school district and our client, a joint powers authority (“JPA”) of which the school district was a member.  Over the course of this litigation, the school district insisted that the JPA failed to provide the promised coverage while the JPA maintained that it fulfilled all of its obligations. Upon reaching arbitration, the case ultimately settled in exchange for a waiver of costs, with no monies owed or ever paid to the school district.
