... That property owners attorney John Magnuson was so hosed at my SR edit this a.m. about Sanders Beach that he sputtered while declaring his side would appeal Judge James Judd's decision here. Frankly, I believe, the got-rocks folks who Magnuson's represents have a chance to see this overturned in their favor at the increasingly politicized Idaho Supreme Court level. The Haves are beaten on the merits. But justices who have to campaign in North Idaho are susceptible to pressure, especially from the Big Shot who has beach property next to Sanders Beach and could be affected by this ruling.
