Watch oral arguments of Proctor, Duluth, Midway annexation case

The video of the Supreme Court hearing that will decide an annexation dispute that can be traced back 40 years can be found on the below link:

The case, that will likely set a new standard for determining property rights, was heard on Halloween.

Siblings George Hovland III and Julie Ann Savalas want to annex their 92-acres of Midway property into Proctor. That decision is now in the hands of the justices following the 68 minute hearing in St. Paul. Following oral arguments the justices retired to the conference room behind the court to decide the case the same day.

Hovland and Savalas petitioned Proctor proposing annexation of their property in 2014. In August 2014 Proctor adopted an ordnance granting their request. Midway and Duluth objected on the grounds that the property is subject to their January 14, 2013 Orderly Annexation Agreement and was therefore not eligible to be part of Proctor.
