RR&M Wins Decision for School District in Property Dispute


Ratwik, Roszak & Maloney attorneys Joe Langel and Nathan Shepherd, representing Independent School District #239, Rushford-Peterson, obtained a final decision in favor of the District in a dispute about the use of the property on which the District recently constructed a new school building.  This decision established that neighboring property owners had only limited rights to use the District’s property to access their own property and denied the neighboring property owners’ claim for constitutional damages.  Mr. Langel and Mr. Shepherd successfully represented the District at trial, before the Minnesota Court of Appeals, and obtained a denial of further review from the Supreme Court.  RR&M congratulates the District on this result. The decision is available online here.
