Court denies appeal over costs of Gracedale legal challenge

HARRISBURG, Pa. - A group that successfully fought to stop the sale of Northampton County's Gracedale Nursing Home will have to pick up the tab for its own legal fees.

Commonwealth Court has denied the appeal of the Gracedale Initiative Petition Committee. The group was trying to recoup $21,000 in legal fees.

The money was spent fending off a challenge from former County Councilman Ron Angle and blogger Bernie O'Hare.

The group had argued the county illegally used taxpayer money to support Angle and O'Hare.
