Tuesday, Nov. 13 the United States District Court for the District of Wyoming dismissed with prejudice the suit filed by Rusty and Marc Andrus, and Rustlers, LLC against the Town of Thayne, Thayne Mayor and Thayne Town Council.
According to court documents associated with the suit dismissal, all claims against the defendants have been dropped. Each party bears the responsibility for their own attorney’s fees and court costs in the case.
“We are extremely pleased with the dismissal and are very relieved that this is finally over,” said Thayne Mayor Deland Lainhart. “It has been dismissed with prejudice which means that it can’t be refiled in any way shape or form.”
According to Mayor Lainhart, the Town of Thayne, members of its town council nor any other party in the case paid any settlement monies to resolve the matter.
“It’s over and we are happy to have it wrapped up,” said Lainhart said.
