MISSOULA -

U.S. Attorney Michael Cotter says the Department of Justice needs more time to respond to a lawsuit filed by the Missoula County Attorney's office.

And... County Attorney Fred Van Valkenburg agrees.

The motion was filed in federal district court Thursday.

The defendants in this case, the Dept. of Justice, asked to filed a 30-day extension to answer to the county attorney's complaint.

Back in February, the Missoula county attorney asked a federal judge to decide if the DoJ can legally investigate his office.

According to court documents filed Thursday, the DoJ and the county will work together with the possibility of coming to a resolution on the matter and for that to happen, both parties agreed to a 30-day extension.
