Hearing in ZBOA lawsuit postponed due to squirrel-caused power outage

The hearing on the motion to dismiss a lawsuit against Cascade County has been postponed because a squirrel knocked out some of the power in the courthouse.

The case is being heard by Judge Olivia Rieger, a district judge for the 7th Judicial District out of Glendive.

Rieger was scheduled to hear the motions Friday morning via VisionNet but since the squirrel knocked out that connectivity, the hearing was postponed.

So far, a new hearing date has not been set.
