CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - Eight New Hampshire towns will get another chance to argue they are owed money by a group that manages health insurance pools for public workers and retirees.

The communities claim they should not have been excluded when the Bureau of Securities Regulation ordered the Local Government Center to return millions of dollars in surplus funds in 2012. The center was ordered to return money only to towns still paying into the fund, not former members.

In a ruling Thursday, the state Supreme Court didn’t address the towns’ arguments but sent the case back for further review. The towns, along with Concord, also had a separate lawsuit against the LGC, but the Supreme Court upheld that suit’s dismissal.

The towns are Salem, Temple, Auburn, Bennington, Meredith, Northfield, Peterborough and Plainfield.
