Idaho Supreme Court Judgment Protects Idaho Property Owner From Land Speculator.


Jeff Sykes successfully defended a property owner against a claim that he was required to sell certain property to a speculative land developer who had convinced elderly individuals to sell their property for less than fair market value.
