UNITY, New Hampshire — The former architect of the new elementary school in Unity, New Hampshire, is fighting back after he was sued by the school district over the cost of the long-delayed project.

The Valley News reports ( Scott Vaughn countersued, alleging a breach of contract by the district. He's seeking more than $800,000 for unpaid services.

The district hired Vaughn in 2010 after voters approved a $4.7 million bond for a new school. The state Board of Education closed the existing school for safety violations.

The school opened in September, two years behind schedule; the cost had grown to nearly $9 million. Vaughn stepped down last year.

In its lawsuit filed in March, the district alleged professional negligence, breach of contract and other charges on Vaughn's part, which Vaughn denies.
