RPO court hearing postponed, again


A planned court hearing in a lawsuit against the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra has been postponed until Thursday, April 11. This is the second postponement for the hearing, which was originally scheduled for March 28.

Attorney Eileen Buholtz is suing to invalidate the RPO board’s January 23 annual meeting, including the results of board member elections. Buholtz ran for a board seat as a write-in candidate and in her lawsuit she argues that RPO officials didn’t properly notify all of the organization members that would have been eligible to vote. In the lawsuit, Buholtz also alleges that RPO officials didn’t recognize write-in ballots submitted at the annual meeting.
