In the next couple of weeks, Third District Judge Ryan Harris is considering a large quantity of claims, allegations and legal arguments from both sides in the Park City Mountain Resort ski hill lawsuit.
In the past two weeks, the Judge heard oral arguments on three major disputes. Last week, the Mountain Resort - which had said it still has a valid lease of over 3,000 acres of its ski hill - said its lease was violated because the landlord, Talisker Land Holdings, in effect, sold the property to Vail Resorts.

The Glenwood Cemetery Association was unsuccessful in a motion to Third District Court Thursday morning, which would have resolved a wrongful-death lawsuit filed against the Glenwood, involving a four-year-old boy who died when a headstone accidentally fell on him.
In a recent court filing, Park City Mountain Resort says that if it were evicted off the ski mountain by its landlord, Talisker Land Holdings, the Resort will dismantle the ski lifts on the hill. Attorneys for Talisker are saying the Resort is not entitled to do that - while the two sides have been debating other issues in court over the past week. Rick Brough has more.
Opposing attorneys for the Park City Mountain Resort and for Talisker returned to Third District Court Thursday and argued two major issues over the Resort's lease of its ski mountain. Judge Ryan Harris didn't hand down a decision, saying he will have rulings at an unspecified time. However, reporters did hear briefly outside the courtroom from Jon Cumming, the CEO of Powdr Corp, parent company of the Mountain Resort. Rick Brough has more.
Attorneys for the Park City Mountain Resort went into Third District Thursday, asking Judge Ryan Harris to reconsider a major ruling against the Resort which he handed down a year and a half ago. In the legal fight with its landlord, Talisker, the Mountain Resort argues that the lease on over 3,000 acres of its ski mountain is still valid.
