CONCORD, N.H. (AP) - A federal judge has rejected the claims of a former Unity elementary school architect who countersued the district seeking $800,000 in unpaid services.

The district sued Scott Vaughn for $2.7 million last March over the cost of the long-delayed project. Vaughn countersued, accusing the district of breaching its contract.

The Valley News reports (https://bit.ly/1Ugtp73 ) the judge rejected Vaughn’s claims that the town and the district share some responsibility for the cost and delays.

The district hired Vaughn in 2010 after a $4.7 million bond for a new school passed. The school opened in September 2014, two years behind schedule. The cost grew to nearly $9 million.

The district’s lawsuit accusing Vaughn of professional negligence, breach of contract and other charges is headed for mediation. He has denied the charges.
