DOJ Files Second Extension to Respond to Missoula Co. Attorney's Complaint

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA - Attorneys from the Department of Justice filed a motion on Tuesday to extend again the time to respond to a lawsuit filed by the Missoula County Attorney's Office.

The defendants last month asked to file a 30-day extension to answer to the Missoula County Attorney's complaint.

Back in February, County Attorney Fred Van Valkenburg asked a federal judge to decide if the DOJ can legally investigate his office.

According to court documents filed then, the DOJ and the county attorney's office would work together with the possibility of coming to a resolution on the matter, and for that to happen, both parties agreed on a 30-day extension.

On Tuesday, the DOJ moved to file a 21-day extension, from May 21 to June 11, to answer to the complaint.

Court documents stated that both parties have been meeting with the Montana Attorney General to resolve the dispute.

The counsel for the Missoula County Attorney's office, Natasha Prinzing Jones, said that the plaintiffs had no objections to the motion for extension of time.
