BREAKING NEWS: Wal-Mart Appeal Hearing Date Set

As reported on NewsTalk! 1150 KQQQ this morning, the Pullman Alliance for Responsible Development's appeal of the Hearing Examiner's decision concerning the Wal-Mart Supercenter will be heard by the Whitman County Superior Court on Thursday, June 22.

It had been erroneously reported by the media previously that the appeal hearing would be this Friday, April 28. That was only a preliminary hearing to set the final date. The preliminary hearing has now been cancelled because the city and PARD have agreed on the date.

As frustrating as it is for the Wal-Mart controversy to drag on for another two months, take comfort in the fact that PARD's union-funded attorneys had been pressing for a September hearing date, no doubt hoping to miss this year's building season.
