Attorney Erik Hansen reports that this afternoon Judge Frank J. Magill, Jr. denied the Healy Project’s request for an injunction against the demolition of 2320 Colfax Avenue South, a.k.a. the Orth House.The judge will issue the rationale for the decision at a later date.
This decision comes as no surprise, as the house is already torn apart in preparation for the Lander Group’s backhoes. However, the Healy Project fully intends to take its case to the Court of Public Opinion, where voters, taxpayers, and concerned citizens can decide whether the political process that took down the historic house at 2320 Colfax was fair, unbiased and uncorrupted.
Update: In early December, workers at the house told neighbors that Crow owned the house and would be demolishing it before Lander bought the property. Crow’s attorney told the judge that Lander would take possession on December 22nd, the day after the judge would be ruling on the TRO. On New Year’s Eve at the end of a story on 2320 featuring Anders Christensen, KSTP-TV reported that Mike Crow still owns the house and is responsible for demolition. Crow was not available for comment.
Did Crow lie to his attorney, or did his attorney lie to the judge in expectation of getting a $950k bond in case the judge issued the TRO? Or is there another explanation of these conflicting reports? Did the closing take place on the date claimed? Inquiring minds want to know.
