It’s a case looking for a new set of eyes.

Attorneys representing the Fluvanna Board of Supervisors filed a notice of appeal May 1 to theVirginia Supreme Court asking that court to reconsider its $18 million lawsuitagainst Davenport & Co. LLC. The suit is asking that Davenport be found responsible for misleading the board regarding the best method to finance the school. Davenport advised supervisors on bonds to fund construction of the new high school which is opening in August.  On Feb. 23, Fluvanna Circuit Court Judge Benjamin N.A. Kendrick dismissed the lawsuit, saying it was not the Circuit Court’s job to determine liability insuch cases.
