Ind. Gov't. - More on "Jasper biomass lawsuit pricetag exceeds $500,000 (so far)"
Updating this ILB post from Oct. 2, 2013, Dubois County NewsNow is reporting "Judge Signs Off On Settlement; 'Biomass' Battle Now Officially Over." Some quotes:
Special Judge Sherry Gregg-Gilmore has signed off on the settlement reached last week between the City of Jasper and the local citizens group Healthy Dubois County, Inc.
Gregg-Gilmore signed the settlement Monday bringing an end to a nearly two-and-a-half year legal battle that started immediately after the City signed a lease agreement with a Georgia-based company to lease the now-idled Jasper power plant. * * *
Terms of the settlement include that both sides dismiss all legal claims against the other and that each pay their own legal costs. The City of Jasper has accrued legal expenses of about $600,000 defending its position. The City has also lost neasrly a half-million dollars in lease payments from Twisted Oak Corporation. Meanwhile, HDC says its legal fees total about $240,000.
