Idaho City Ordered To Pay Gun Club’s Attorney Fees

posted on June 20, 2017

The Idaho Supreme Court has ruled that the city of Hauser must reimburse the Hauser Lake Rod and Gun Club for fees accrued in a legal battle dating back to 2012. The gun club was issued a notice of code violation due to the noise generated at its shooting range. The club was eventually victorious in the resulting lawsuit because it is located outside the city’s jurisdiction, but the district court declined to award it damages.

Now that the higher court has reversed this decision, the gun club may receive a large figure.

“It’s a substantial amount of money,” according to club member Jerry Paulus. “It’s been over a five-year process.” The club reportedly paid over $20,000 in attorney fees in 2012 alone.

Hauser Lake Rod and Gun Club will spend the next few weeks organizing receipts to establish the amount of damages.
