Gogebic Taconite mining company (GTAC) opponent, Katie Krow Kloth, appeared at an initial hearing today on Iron County District Attorney Martin Lipske’s charge of felony bailjumping.
Kloth’s motion to dismiss was denied.
An evidentiary hearing is scheduled for Feb. 17, 2015 to determine whether probable cause exist for the criminal process on this charge to continue.
The case is State of Wisconsin vs. Katie M Kloth (Iron County Case Number 2015CF000001).
Kloth appeared in orange jail attire and hand cuffs, an observer said.
The case is manufactured by GTAC and Idea Drilling company working with Iron County officials to throw Kloth behind bars for as many years as it can get a judge to agree.
