The hearing that 2nd District Judge John Bradbury had set for tomorrow morning in Grangeville on a possible injunction to block the Idaho Transportation Department from issuing permits to ConocoPhillips for four huge truck shipments from Lewiston to Lolo Pass over U.S. Highway 12 has been put on hold until Monday. According to the attorneys for the plaintiffs in the case - three Highway 12 residents - the judge held a telephone hearing with the parties today, denied a motion from ITD to disqualify him as the judge in the case; granted a motion to allow Conoco to intervene as a party; and, with agreement of all sides, rescheduled the hearing for Monday at 11 a.m. in Lewiston.
