Bob Stein Former Timberwolves CEO and Lind, Jensen, Sullivan & Peterson, P.A. client wins silica sand court battles

Firm President Rick Lind recently won two court battles in Goodhue County that involved millions of tons of frac sand. The client, Bob Stein, filed a lawsuit in March 2011 alleging that he’d been improperly cut out of a land deal after an Oklahoma energy company, Windsor Permian, purchased 94 acres near Red Wing for $1.5 million. In the court case Stein v. Wesch, et. al., a five-day jury trial ended with the jury ruling that Windsor Permian and its subsidiaries had intentionally interfered with Stein’s contract withScott and Susan Wesch. A damage determination will follow later this summer or fall. See Rick Lind’s quote in Rochester Post Bulletin.
