Court to Order Fishers and GUO into Mediation
Judge Nation issued a court order today forcing the Town of Fishers and the Geist United Opposition into mediation to settle the forced annexation dispute. After the signed remonstrance petitions were filed earlier this year, the legal battle moved to Hamilton County courts to decide the outcome of this two-year land battle for the unincorporated areas around Geist.
Judge Nation is ordering mediation to be held on September 11th between the Town of Fishers and representatives from the GUO. An attorney from Carmel will officiate the mediation. Before mediation will occur, the GUO will be hosting meetings with the petitioners to obtain signatures from the residents allowing the GUO to be their agents during the mediation. Non-GUO representatives will not be allowed during the mediation according to court documents.
