Hauser under the gun to pay attorney fees

City officials did not return calls Wednesday, and one council member refused to comment on a recent Idaho Supreme Court ruling that awards the Hauser Lake Rod and Gun Club attorney fees going back to 2012 when the city accused the club of violating a code on property over which the city had no jurisdiction.

In its opinion published this month, the state’s high court reversed an opinion from the district court that denied awarding attorney fees to the gun club.

“The city of Hauser attempted to enforce its code on the club, an entity located outside the city,” according to the opinion. “After extensive administrative and legal proceedings, the club prevailed against the city and requested attorney fees (but) … the district court denied the club’s request for fees.”

The high court ruling awards fees to the club from 2012 to this year. More here. Ralph Bartholdt/CdAPress
