Croell Redi-Mix, Inc. is suing the Pennington County Board of Commissioners because the commissioners revoked a construction permit in regards to mining at the new quarry. Croell is also seeking $10 million in damages in a separate lawsuit. The Rapid City Journal reports the next phase in both trials is to finish the discovery process by October 1st.
