Legal battle over former Nashua Historical Society president’s status continues with appeal, arbitration
“There is an agreement to explore a possible settlement,” Attorney Francis Murphy, legal counsel for Romano, said on Wednesday. “The Supreme Court mediation program invited us to participate, and we will see if some resolution can take place short of (presenting the case to) the five justices.”
Previously, Hillsborough County Superior Court-North Judge Diane Nicolosi denied a preliminary injunctive relief, directing the society to reinstate Romano. And, earlier this year, Nicolosi dismissed a petition seeking permanent injunctive relief on the same matter, maintaining the court is prohibited from intervening in the organization’s dispute.
In addition, Murphy questioned Nicolosi’s ruling to deny preliminary injunction because Romano suffered no irreparable harm.
Still, both sides have agreed to proceed with mediation, and if a settlement is reached, the appeal will be dropped, explained Murphy.
Meanwhile, Murphy said that Romano and the petitioners still want an explanation as to why Romano was terminated, which still has not been fully answered or addressed.
