Peter Berger Found Guilty of Blocking Road; Appeals Case

Peter Berger, farmer living south of St. Anthony, was found guilty of obstructing a public highway and was fined $25 and costs in justice court Monday before Justice A. R. Herman. Berger has appealed his case to the district court and it will be heard at the fall term.

Just a week ago, Berger plowed up a stretch of highway no. 21 in the vicinity of Oak coulee. He claims that the land belongs to him despite a district court decision which pronounced the land public property. He has appealed this case to the supreme court.
