The Cowlitz County Commissioners are sending a letter to U. S. District Court Judge Ronald Leighton, requesting an expedited resolution to the suit that EGT has filed against the Port of Longview. In the letter sent yesterday, the Commissioners note that this is a “very volatile situation,” with a high risk of escalation. They say that there’s a potential for serious injury to citizens and to law enforcement. As yet, there’s been no response from the Federal court. It’s currently expected that Leighton will consider the lawsuit some time in spring of next year.
