Judge Tena Campbell – Motion for Summary Judgment denied

United States of America v. Great Salt Lake Council, Inc., Boy Scouts of America, The Corporation of the President of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, The Peoa Corporation of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Case No. 2:04-CV-604 TC

January 22, 2007  

Judge Tena Campbell

As an update to an earlier post post, Judge Tena Campbell has denied the Government’s Motion for Summary Judgment seeking to hold the Boy Scouts responsible for over $12 million in damages for lighting a fire (or rather, not putting out a fire) that eventually consumed more than 14,000 acres in 2002.

“Because there are genuine issues of material fact regarding causation [of the fire], the United States’ Motion for Partial Summary Judgment is denied.” The issue of causation will be determined by the jury.

Case is set for trial in March 2007.
