Judge to reconsider ruling in Boy Scout camp case

Thu., July 19, 2012, 6:50 a.m.

COEUR D’ALENE — A judge says he will reconsider his earlier ruling allowing a land deal involving a historic Boy Scout campsite along Lake Coeur d’Alene to go ahead.

District Judge John Luster said after a hearing Wednesday that he will consider new points raised by representatives of Camp Easton Forever Inc. and the Inland Council of Boy Scouts.

Camp Easton Forever sued the Boy Scout council over the council’s plans to trade the 80-year-old camp to a luxury developer for a new camp at Sunup Bay.

The Coeur d’Alene Press reports that the nonprofit group argued Camp Easton is part of a charitable trust and the judge improperly based his May 21 ruling on a law that should not have been considered.

It is not clear when Luster will rule.
