A court hearing that was set for the injunction against Cascade County and the Cascade County Commissioners has been postponed.

Last month, Ryan Villines filed the injunction in hopes of stopping the appointing of an open position to the Zoning Board of Adjustments (ZBOA).

Attorney Mark Higgins responded on behalf of the county and the commissioners, stating that no summons have been issued.

Higgins also states that an injunction cannot be granted because the process of appointing someone to the ZBOA is a legislative act.

In the order, Judge Olivia Rieger stated that Villines did not meet the Montana Uniform District Court Rules.

 There is no notice of substance of request for relief, no evidence the county or commissioners were serviced, and there was no indication if the county or commissioners oppose the motion.

Reiger also wrote that Villines’ request for an injunction is improper because it is not the correct avenue for him to seek relief from the actions of the commissioners.

Reiger states that it is also unclear if Villines wants the court to appoint an individual to the ZBOA.

A hearing will be set after all of the parties involved have been properly serviced.
