SISTERS, OR -- Federal Judge Ann Aiken has upheld a previous ruling in favor of the City of Sisters, in a discrimination suit filed by a local food cart owner.
The court found there was no merit to the lawsuit brought by Ky Karnecki in 2012, and said the case should be dismissed.
Karnecki owned the Wild Mountain Food Stand in Sisters ... he sued the City, accusing several officials of discriminatory treatment in enforcing City requirements for a Temporary Use Permit.
The Judge ruled in favor of the City of Sisters based on, among other things, the fact that the Plaintiff filed his paperwork three weeks past the court-appointed deadline.
Aiken upheld the ruling of Judge Thomas Coffin who had earlier ruled that Karnecki had a full hearing at trial in State Court and further concluded that his Federal claims should be dismissed.
