DELTA COUNTY IN THE NEWS — Judge: Retaliation aim of lawsuit

A Delta County judge has doubled down on a previous judgment against an energy firm in its suit against a Paonia activist, declaring that the suit is frivolous and was filed to retaliate against the industry critic.

District Court Judge Steven Schultz issued his latest ruling this week in finding that SG Interests owes Pete Kolbenschlag attorney fees in connection with defending himself from the libel suit brought by the company.
