On April 11, 2013, State Supreme Court Justice Kenneth Fisher heard oral arguments in the case filed against Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra by attorney Eileen Buholtz. Ms. Buholtz’ s petition sought to set aside of the January 23rd annual meeting of Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, Inc. because of its many violations of its by-laws and the New York Not-for-Profit Corporation Law. By decision and order dated April 15, 2013, the Hon. Kenneth Fisher denied Ms. Buholtz’s requests on all grounds.
The court date for the oral arguments regarding the RPO Annual Meeting have changed again. They are now on April 11 at 2:00PM.
NEW COURT DATE for oral arguments regarding the RPO annual meeting at Justice Fisher’s request.
New date: April 5, 9:45 AM
Admin assumes the location will be the same.
Oral argument on Eileen Buholtz’s petition to set aside the January 23rd annual meeting of RPO, Inc. is 9:30 am on March 28, 2013 at the Hall of Justice, 99 Exchange Blvd, Rochester 14614. Parking is available in the Civic Center Garage under the Hall of Justice; the entrance to the garage is from South Fitzhugh St. Regarding the metal detector to enter the building, belts must be removed and scanned separately, so foregoing a belt will speed up the security scanning. Once inside the metal detectors, ask at the sheriff’s information desk on the first floor for Justice Fisher’s special-term courtroom. It is expected to be on the fifth floor. This will be the first time that Justice Fisher will consider the manner in which RPO, Inc. conducted the January 23rd meeting.
