If you rear-end a school bus, would you demand a jury trial?
Maybe not. But you’re not the owners of TWO outdoor wood boilers accused of smoking out a neighborhood and school.
On Jan 31, the attorney for the owners filed a “demand” for a jury trial.
Jason Gazewood, Esq, is the defense attorney for the husband and wife who in 2008 installed two outdoor wood boilers across the street from Woodriver Elementary School.
Can the Alaska Attorney General’s office, representing Alaska DEC, convince a jury that the defendants’ smoke caused a nuisance in violation of state law and must be shut down?
The smoke started in 2008. When will it stop?
Today, Feb 1, Judge Michael MacDonald recused himself from the case which was then reassigned to Judge Robert Downes.
