The Lewiston Tribune reports that ConocoPhillips filed a notice of appeal at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesday at the 2nd District Court office in Grangeville. So far this morning, the Idaho Supreme Court has not received a notice of appeal of 2nd District Judge John Bradbury’s decision revoking ITD permits for Conoco’s proposed four mega-loads of oil refinery equipment to travel U.S. Highway 12 from Lewiston to Montana; the defendants who lost have 42 days from the date of judgment to file an appeal. The Tribune reported, “The oil company filed the appeal based on respondents failure to meet their burden of proof that these shipments would harm them and that the District Court erred in considering certain evidence. ”
