In December, it was discovered there were more files in storage at the Fergus County Courthouse. Our PLWA board discussed this with the attorneys, agreeing that these boxes needed to be investigated. To accomplish this, we needed more time. Our attorneys filed a court request to continue the trial, allowing for this additional research. During a conference call between the attorneys and Judge Brenda Gilbert, it was agreed the trial would be continued. This decision was made January 12, 2018.
The Mabee Road trial is currently scheduled for September 10, 2018. The attorneys stated that the date was moved out to accommodate Fergus County time schedules, as well as reviewing the new discoveries.
This communication is the first opportunity I have had to get this trial date change out to the PLWA membership.
We will be in contact with our attorney’s to keep our costs to a minimum during the time from now until the trial.
Bernard Lea, PLWA President
