PCMR

Park City Mountain Resort won an important round in Third District court Wednesday. Judge Ryan Harris ruled that PCMR can amend its lawsuit against its landlord, Talisker. While PCMR still maintains that its leases for the bulk of its ski terrain are valid, Judge Harris said PCMR can also press the claim that its rights under the lease have been violated, because Talisker allegedly transferred or sold the 3700 acres of ski mountain to another company, possibly one tied to Vail Resorts.

Talisker Denied Emails

Sep 10, 2013

Talisker Land Holdings has suffered a reversal in its efforts to get a look at nearly two dozen internal e mails between officers at the Park City Mountain Resort and their attorneys.   After personally reviewing the e-mails, Third District Court Judge Ryan Harris ruled Tuesday that the documents do, after all, fall within attorney-client privilege and can't be shown to Talisker.  Rick Brough has more.

The Talisker Land company won a round in Third District Court Friday, in its ongoing legal battle with the Park City Mountain Resort. Judge Ryan Harris ruled that there can be an examination of internal e-mails generated by PCMR officials and attorneys, to determine how a document was backdated. The Mountain Resort had cited that letter to back up its case that the lease of the ski mountain was still valid. Judge Harris said he was making an exception to the attorney-client confidentiality, but said the disclosure of some 22 e-mails is subject to his review. Rick Brough has more. 

Talisker Issues Eviction Notice

Although there is a pending legal fight between Park City Mountain Resort and Talisker Land Holdings, the Resort was still able, last ski season, to use its ski mountain, the subject of a disputed lease from Talisker.

However, the rent that the Mountain Resort pays on the ski terrain has been hung up, due to the dispute between the two companies. That was mentioned by attorneys on both sides as they appeared in Third DIstrict Court. Rick Brough has more.
