Grantsville vs. Tooele lawsuit delayed again by Tim Gillie Tooele Transcript Bulletin (UT) January 13, 2009 Legal fees continue to mount as eight-year-old case drags onAn eight-year-old lawsuit filed by the city of Grantsville against the city of Tooele over the sale of the Utah Industrial Depot may still take months to resolve after the Utah State Supreme Court returned the case to the state Court of Appeals.
Meanwhile, the lawsuit continues to rack up expenses for taxpayers of both cities.
Tooele has spent $1.45 million defending itself from the 2001 breach-of-contract lawsuit, in which Stockton City was also a plaintiff, according to Glen Caldwell, director of finance for Tooele City. Grantsville has spent $947,000 in legal fees on the suit thus far as well, according to Jeremy Walker, finance director for Grantsville City. Stockton has not spent any money but has agreed to reimburse Grantsville out of the proceeds of the suit if they prevail, according to Grantsville Mayor Byron Anderson. The agreement was an informal arrangement between previous mayors, Anderson said. He is not certain how much Stockton would be willing to pay for legal fees in the event the courts rule in Tooele’s favor.
