SCOTT TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- The U.S. Supreme Court handed down a victory for a woman from Lackawanna County who sued Scott Township over her property.
Rose Mary Knick sued the township after officials made her open her farm to the public to access a gravesite on the property. She claimed there are no graves there.
Knick went to the high court to overturn a previous decision that has kept her case out of federal court.
On Friday, justices ruled that Knick can seek compensation in federal court.
