No decision today on RPO lawsuit


This afternoon, State Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Fisher heard arguments in a lawsuit against the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. He's not issuing a decision today but will do so by the end of next week, says Eileen Buholtz, the attorney that filed the legal challenge.

Buholtz is suing to invalidate the results of the RPO's annual meeting, which happened on January 23. In particular, she wants the results of the board member elections thrown out. Buholtz, who ran as a write-in candidate for the board, alleges that the RPO didn't properly notify all of the members who would have been eligible to vote. She also alleges that the RPO board failed to recognize the write-in ballots submitted at the meeting.
