District judge orders Shelbyville, Wright Paving to file status report on quarry case
U.S. District Judge Harry S. Mattice has ordered the city of Shelbyville, Tennessee, and Wright Paving/Custom Stone LLC to file a status report no later than June 7 on the case of a $10 million lawsuit over a proposed rock quarry, the Shelbyville Times-Gazette reported.
Mattice ordered both parties to update him on any proceedings in state court and whether the federal court should move forward with the suit.
The lawsuit has been ongoing for about two years.
About a month ago, State Appellate Judge Patricia J. Cottrell ordered Shelbyville’s Board of Zoning Appeals to consider at the earliest possible date an application Wright Paving submitted in 2004 for a property on L. Fisher Road. City officials met on April 25 to consider the application and rejected the conditional use of the industrial property for Wright Paving’s proposed rock quarry.
