Debate On PCMR Detainer

Feb 18, 2014

Opposing attorneys in the legal fight over the ski mountain lease of Park City Mountain Resort went into Third District Court last week.  The major arguments focused on claims from Talisker, the landlord, that it is entitled to evict the Mountain Resort,  and is owed the profits that the Mountain Resort has made every since its lease allegedly expired in the spring of 2011.

Rick Brough has more.
