Wasden on SupCourt arguments: ‘Both sides represented the case well’

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."
