Tony Byler is quoted in the Patch article, “Lawsuit Filed Against Upper Merion Over New HS Construction,” in regard to the firm’s representation of 10x Investments LLC in a suit against the Upper Merion School District.
A lawsuit filed this week against the Upper Merion School District claims that officials wasted taxpayer money by awarding an HVAC contract related to the construction of the new high school to an unnecessarily pricey bid.
The action was entered in Montgomery County Court on June 15 by a taxpayer in the Upper Merion School District, 10x Investments LLC. They argued the district violated Pennsylvania public bidding law in their actions.
A spokesperson for the Upper Merion School declined to comment on the matter.
“Taxpayer money is not a plaything,” Anthony L. Byler, an attorney with the law firm Cohen Seglias Pallas Greenhall & Furman PC, which represents 10X, said in a statement. “Pennsylvania law requires school districts to secure the least costly contract for the taxpayers. A school district is required to obtain materials and supplies at the best possible price.”
