News of the proceedings in Spokane

Decision on proposed Wal-Mart Supercenter in Pullman not expected anytime soon (says PARD's mouthpiece)

Pullman Alliance for Responsible Development attorney Dave Bricklin said it could take three to six months before a decision is rendered by the Division III Court of Appeals regarding Wal-Mart's plans to build a super center in Pullman.

Bricklin and an attorney for Wal-Mart presented their oral arguments before a panel of three judges in Spokane on Wednesday.

PARD spokesman T.V. Reed said he's glad to once again have the process moving forward.

"All we can do is wait," Reed said. "We'd like to win and get this over with."

Wal-Mart attorney Chuck Madull declined comment after presenting his oral arguments.
