Judge: Pidexx Court Case Will Not Be Delayed

A judge has denied Pike Industries' request to put its court case on hold while
it continues to work with Westbrook officials to find a compromise to operate
its quarry. Justice Thomas Humphrey met Thursday in Cumberland County Superior
Court with lawyers representing the city and businesses in and around its Five
Star Industrial Park. Sigmund Schutz, a lawyer representing Pike, asked Humphrey
for more time to seek an agreement allowing Pike to operate its quarry off
Spring Street. "We have an extraordinary interest in resolving this," Schutz
said. "I don't suggest that this litigation be slowed down in any way. We think
this is the fastest way to bring this to a close."
