Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden said after today’s Supreme Court arguments on the Land Board case, “I thought that both sides represented the case well. The court has a couple of options here; we knew that going in.” The court, he said, could either issue a writ of prohibition against the state Land Board, as Wasden requested; or it could deny the writ and “send us to the district court.” He said, “I thought the arguments were well constructed and well presented to the court, and I thought the questions were pretty telling as far as the interest of the court.”
