The Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte are hoping to clear the way for an auction of a highway 49 property.
Quinte News has learned lawyers for the band are in court today, asking a judge to force Andrew Clifford Miracle, the former property owner to remove all items from a building, which once housed a cigarette making operation.
Our source says the building, once owned by Miracle, is now in the possession of the band, who is hoping to auction the property.
More details are expected later this week.
Meantime, a former employee of the highway 49 operation has been served, after cigarette-making equipment was taken from the site.
Raul Patterson, a South American businessman, is seeking $1.8 million, or the safe return of six pieces used in the assembly on highway 49, near highway 2.
The lawsuit is against Gairin Smith, a former member of the Belleville Bulls, who is believed to be currently out of the country.
More details on that Notice of Application is expected in the coming weeks.
