Grow Trigg Appeals Montgomery Ruling

Cadiz, KY – Grow Trigg representative Petey Rogers has filed an appeal to Trigg Circuit Judge C.A. Woodall's ruling that the Montgomery voting precinct can revert back to a dry' status through another alcohol referendum. The Paducah Sun reports Judge-Executive Stan Humphries was planning to announce the referendum's date on Monday. Montgomery precinct residents had argued they were a distinct entity from the county and did not have to wait three years to reinstate prohibition. Rogers's appeal seeks to halt any referendum through an injunction, sending the case to a higher Kentucky court.
