Talisker served with PCMR lawsuit

United Park City Mines and Talisker Land Holdings, LLC, the codefendants in a lawsuit that could decide the future of Park City Mountain Resort, were served with the legal complaint on March 13, triggering a window during which the two must file an answer.

The defendants have 20 days from March 13 to submit an answer in Third District Court. The date is April 2, a Monday. An answer is a legal document in which a defendant typically disputes the other side’s claims on a line-by-line basis.

Mike Goar, the managing director of Canyons, acknowledged the codefendants were served with the lawsuit. He said the defendants were preparing an answer, but he was unsure when it would be filed. Canyons is under the Talisker corporate umbrella.

A case is able to move forward once an answer is filed. In some cases, a plaintiff does not serve a defendant so quickly. The lawsuit was filed on March 9.

The lawsuit centers on a dispute about PCMR’s lease of the land where the resort sits. The land is under the control of Talisker Land Holdings, LLC and was historically owned by United Park City Mines.

If it does not prevail in the lawsuit, the resort might be forced to close, PCMR’s leadership has said.
