From the July 9, 1936 News Record:

The city of Gillette, through its attorney, filed an answer to a damage suit petition in the Clerk of Court's office yesterday afternoon, denying every allegation and asking dismissal of the action and recovery of costs. Lawrence Shippey, Frank M. Shippey and Augusta Shippey, recently filed suit against the city, asking $10,000 damages alleged to have been incurred by the passage of the city sewer ditch over their property. The plaintiffs are represented by Lonabaugh and Lonabaugh, Sheridan law firm, while the city's case is being handled by City Attorney Elwood Anderson.
