On Tuesday, June 30, Mountain Water's attorneys filed a motion with the Montana Fourth Judicial District Court, asking the court to stay the valuation proceedings in the city of Missoula's condemnation action against Mountain Water.
Missoula Mayor John Engen said he first heard about District Judge Karen Townsend's ruling for the city against Mountain Water late Monday afternoon, just minutes before the weekly city council meeting.
Missoula Mayor John Engen met with EPA regional director Shaun McGrath on Monday afternoon in a parking lot that once held iconic Missoula businesses like the Fox Theater and the original Mustard Seed restaurant.
Attorneys on both sides of the Mountain Water Condemnation lawsuit used their most persuasive closing arguments Monday evening as they attempted to convince District Judge Karen Townsend that their side should prevail.
The City of Missoula wasted no time in jumping on the bandwagon protesting Indiana's religious freedom law, worried that too much religious freedom might mean discrimination against the LGBT community.
