Time for Trial


With the end of summer comes the end of our long wait to finally go to trial in our civil lawsuit against our former landlords at Metropolis Minneapolis. Some time ago we were given a trial block of September and we now have an actual start date. Our jury trial will begin on Monday, September 18th–just one week from today. Due to the numerous complaints we brought against them, the trial will likely last most if not all of the week. The trial is open to the public and will take place at the Hennepin County courthouse in courtroom #1059. It will begin around 9:00am each day and end by 5:00pm.

We ask for your prayers that justice will be served, in whatever form that may take. We pray for the grace of perseverance, humility, and acceptance. We also pray for the ability to collect in a timely fashion upon any damages that may be awarded by the jury if we prevail, and for discernment regarding our future.

I wish to thank our many patrons for your support of Open Window Theatre and my family during this very difficult tribulation over the past 1.5-2 years, and particularly during the past year since closing the theatre and moving out of Metropolis.

We will certainly keep you posted on the developments of the trial!
