Judge Dismisses Racketeering Charge From Blaine County School District


A judge has dismissed a charge of racketeering that the Blaine County School District had leveled against a contractor. Seattle based McKinstry performed energy upgrades on several district buildings. The company later sued saying it wasn’t paid all it was owed. The district says McKinstry billed for unauthorized work and responded to the suit with the racketeering charge. Fifth Judicial District judge Robert Elgee dismissed that claim this week. However, the court has not ruled on other misconduct charges made by the district.
