Judge David Frazier today denied the Pullman Alliance for Responsible Development's appeals of Hearing Examiner John Montgomery's approval of the Pullman Wal-Mart Supercenter project.
Frazier delivered an hour-long ruling in which he commended Montgomery for doing a thorough job. The attorneys for CLC Associates, the Wal-Mart developer, believe the judge's decision is iron-clad, defensible, and they are confident it will withstand any appeal.
This is not total victory yet, but we can sure see it from here! PARD can still appeal to the appellate court in Spokane, but it is very unlikely that the appeal would be heard at this point, and even less likely that any injunction would be issued to prevent construction from starting.
