Judge hears arguments in landmark data trespass case
A judge in a high-profile civil trespass suit that pits ranchers against an environmental activist said Friday he didn’t expect the facts would justify punitive damages against Western Watersheds employee Jonathan Ratner.
During a three-hour hearing, Ninth District Judge Norman Young also said he thought the facts would show that Ratner did in fact trespass when he was collecting environmental data.
