Arguments over dismissing Y Cross suit go to judge
A judge in Cheyenne heard arguments today over whether to dismiss the lawsuit about the Y Cross Ranch. The suit was filed by a Amy Davis, 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.
The lawsuit is holding up the foundations' plans to sell the 50,000-acre 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.
