Opposition continues over the prospect of a wind farm project in Bingham County.

Permission was granted to opponents of the Goshen South Wind Power Project in Wolverine Canyon to conduct discovery and present additional evidence at a later date.  Permission was granted by Magistrate Judge Richard St. Clair Thursday at the Bingham County Courthouse.

The hearing saw arguments on motions filed by the Natural Guardian Limited Partnership, along with Stan and Linn Hawkins, Louise and Susan Morales and Lavar and Jeanette Grover.

Together, they believe the permission to put up a wind farm was granted by the county based on an older ordinance that had since been changed.

Another argument by the opposition is that there needs to be adequate postings on the land if it is to be developed into a wind farm.

The discovery process will continue through the next three months.

Both sides will then bring everything back to court for more argument on July 28th.
