PATS Suit Dismissed
By Chris Taylor
Paducah, KY – McCracken Circuit Court Judge Craig Clymer yesterday dismissed the Paducah Area Transit Authority's lawsuit. The suit aimed to overturn a zoning board's ruling which barred Greyhound buses from using the Lower Town terminal on Ninth and Harrison streets. However, that ruling is not based on the suit's merits, but on a technicality. Clymer ruled the lawsuit failed to name Monica and Paul Bilak as defendants. The Bilaks originally filed the petition to Paducah's Historic and Architectural Review Commission, or HARC, prompting the zoning decision. For now, the HARC ruling stands. PATS is expected to review its options later this month, when they could decide to drop the issue, appeal the ruling, or file a new lawsuit.
