Bai- ley for land damage as a result of the sewer farm. The high court refused the ap- plication for rehearing of the case, which established the city's liability for damage to adjoining property by the sewer farm oper- ation. Both Tom Eplen, attorney who represented the city in the trial of the case in district court in Shnckelford County and the original appeal, in IHh Court of. Civil Appeals at Easlland, and John Davidson, city attorney, said Wednesday noon they had no comment to make on the de- cision. Only remaining possible step or the ctiy is a highly unusual ;ecoiid motion for rehearing. The Supreme Court on Oct. 25 lad upheld a damage iudgmenl in favor of Bailey in the 'irst of 22 cases filed by proper- .y owners in the area of the sew. er farm. The fact that the court .cok nearly five months to rule on the city's motion for rehear- ing had brought some hope to city officials for a reversal.
