Hearing delayed in vegetable grower's case against the city of Watson


MONTEVIDEO -- Attorney John Mack began his argument to the court Tuesday by stating the matter was "very clear," but unfortunately for the New London counselor, his cell phone connection was not.

An obviously irked District Judge David Mennis terminated the civil lawsuit hearing only a few minutes into it when he learned that Mack was using a cell phone instead of a land line to participate.

The hearing had been scheduled Tuesday afternoon in District Court in Montevideo.
