After a seven-day trial, a court in southern Minnesota has resolved every disputed factual question in favor of Greene Espel’s client, the City of Rochester, and its co-defendant. John Baker and Monte Mills defended the City against charges of alleged irregularities in the bidding process used to award the City’s bus-service contract to the co-defendant instead of the plaintiff. Greene Espel had previously prevailed at the trial court and on appeal on all of the plaintiff’s other claims. Monte Mills is quoted in this Rochester Post Bulletin article regarding the win.
