After two days in court, Chief U.S. District Judge Gina Groh ruled in favor of Rockwool, the under-construction stone-wool manufacturing plant in Ranson, on Wednesday. The ruling granted the company a preliminary injunction to prohibit the Jefferson County Board of Education from taking “any further action in furtherance of its threat to condemn Rockwool’s property.”

Rockwool’s motion for a preliminary injunction stemmed from a civil lawsuit filed by Rockwool against the Jefferson County Board of Education. On April 9, the board allegedly told Rockwool that it had outstanding plans to construct a Regional Student Support Center, and the board offered to buy 194.7 acres of Rockwool’s property for $1,362,900, which the board deems fair market value based on the analysis of similar properties recently sold in the county. According to court documents, the board threatened to condemn the property if the offer was rejected.

Good. Hopefully the irrational anti-Rockwool crowd is squashed for good -- though I don't doubt they'll try some other ridiculous stunts. Hopefully facts will ultimately win out over hysteria, Jefferson Co. needs the economic development.
