Superior Court Delays
Decision On Billboards


June 8, 2013

Judge appears unable to complete his written decision before leave.

      California Superior Court Judge Brian McCarville at a Friday, May 24, 2013 hearing said that he would have his decision on the legality of the county issued billboard permits, for the Silver Valley region, released prior to June 10 when he will take a one week leave from the bench for an educational event.

      According to the judge's clerk on Friday, June 7, 2013, the judge will not be able to meet the earlier announced release date.

      Currently, the court's decision is now expected to be publicly released sometime during the mid or later part of the week of June 17, 2013.

      The existing six billboards on Interstate-15, and the many more permitted to be erected on the I-15 and I-40, are the dream of Newberry Springs resident Spike Lynch who has spent nearly two decades of his life mining this anticipated field of gold.

      Whether this long term endeavor is yet another folly of Spike Lynch's attempts of getting rich, will be indicated through the court's decision.  If the decision does not pan out for Lynch, the decision might not contain a direct order addressing the removal of the now existing 6 billboards on Interstate-15.  The court could leave that up for others to resolve.
