Trumpeter suit set for 2008 trial
As things stand, a lawsuit filed five years ago by a development company against Pierce County and its former land management committee will go to trial next summer.
During a telephone conference Wednesday, Judge John Damon set the suit for trial July 28 through Aug. 1, 2008. A 12-person jury will hear the case.
Last month, Judge Damon rejected all the county's motions to end the lawsuit in which the development company is asking for over $4 million in damages.
