A judge has dismissed a case brought by opponents to a high density housing development.
Judge Gerald D. McBeth, brought in to hear the lawsuit after Platte County judges had recused themselves, has dismissed the case “without prejudice,” according to records listed on Casenet.
Interestingly, the judge’s order ruling the dismissal does not state reasons as to why the dismissal is being granted. And an attorney in the case says the judge’s order does not use the words “without prejudice.”
Platte County, on multiple grounds, had asked the court to dismiss the case, which was filed “vs. Platte County, Missouri” by opponents to the proposed Chapel Ridge housing development. For more on story.
