After a full day of argument Friday, Oct. 8, in the case of High Sierra Rural Alliance vs. the County of Plumas, Judge Gayle Gwynup thanked both sides for a job well done and said she would probably take the full 90 days to issue her opinion.

The 8a program targets “small, minority owned, disadvantaged businesses.”
