Arguments over dismissing Y Cross Suit Go to Judge
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — A judge in Cheyenne heard arguments Tuesday over whether to dismiss a lawsuit filed by a woman who gave a ranch to two university foundations and now accuses them of not honoring the intent of her gift.
Laramie County District Judge Thomas Campbell said he would rule later on a request by the University of Wyoming Foundation and Colorado State University Research Foundation to dismiss the suit against them by Amy Davis, of Denver.
The lawsuit is holding up the foundations' plans to sell the 50,000-acre Y Cross Ranch between Cheyenne and Laramie.
Davis claims the schools haven't fully honored her intent for the ranch to be used for hands-on agriculture education.
An attorney for the foundations says Davis lacks standing to sue. Davis' attorney says Davis' lawsuit is valid.
