(Wyo)-Wyo Supreme Court Rejects Challenge To Capitol Refurbish Contract
CHEYENNE, S.D. (AP) - The Wyoming Supreme Court has rejected a legal challenge over how state officials are managing the $300 million dollar renovation of the state Capitol complex in Cheyenne.
The high court ruled unanimously Tuesday that former State Rep. Gerald Gay of Casper and Evanston resident Karl Allred lacked legal cause to sue the state over the matter.
Gay and Allred contended that Gov. Matt Mead and legislative leaders violated the state constitution by issuing contracts without competitive bids, but the Supreme Court ruled that Gay and Allred failed to show they suffered injury or harm by the action and thus did not have the right to bring the lawsuit.
Gay tells the Wyoming Tribune Eagle that the court decision leaves citizens without a pathway to address grievances through the courts.
