“JZ Knight’s legal team issued this response to Megan Hansen’s front-page story in today’s Nisqually Valley News”:
“JZ Knight has not been ordered to pay $195,000 in attorney fees and costs, as reported in the Nisqually Valley News. No court order setting the amount of a fee award has been issued. The Court of Appeals decision on the land use appeal allowed the City and Tahoma Terra to submit requests for “reasonable” attorney fees and costs. Their requests for fees were submitted, but Knight has an opportunity to submit objections to the fee requests. These objections are due to be filed by June 28th. A court ruling on a fee award is expected within two weeks. Knight’s attorneys do not expect the court to award the City and Tahoma Terra the amount of fees they requested,” quoting Ms. Knight’s website.
‘There could still be an objection to the reasonableness of the amount of the fees, and there could also be a petition for review to the Supreme Court as well,’ said Community Development Director Grant Beck.”…
RSE [Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment] abuts Tahoma Terra,”
quoting Ms. Hansen’s report.
Webster’s Dictionary defines the word ABUT:
“to be adjacent; touch or join at the edge or border”
Therefore, the sentence is incorrect because no place does any Tahoma Terra parcel abut RSE.
The facts in the case that led to Thurston County Superior Court Judge Wickham to side with Ms. Knight.
