Knight originally filed a land use appeal in Thurston County Superior Court in March of 2008 challenging the City of Yelm’s approval of five preliminary plats totaling 568 new residences. On November 7, 2008, Thurston County Superior Court Judge Chris Wickham entered a final judgment, reversing the City of Yelm’s attempt to approve five proposed new developments without adequate proof of a sufficient water supply.

The Court of Appeals opinion issued on April 13, 2010 dismissed JZ Knight’s LUPA petition and reversed the Thurston County Superior Court ruling.

JZ Knight filed a petition July 19, 2010, seeking Washington Supreme Court review of a Court of Appeal’s decision issued on April 13, 2010.

The Supreme Court granted review of Knight’s case at their November 2, 2010 conference.
