Bradley Paumen and Michael Modiri: Unresolved Land Dispute

Businessman Michael Modiri and tourism stakeholder Bradley Paumen share a history of enmity over access to private lands in Franks Eddy Village.  Earlier this year, Paumen, along with several others, was indicted on charges related to a plot to kill Modiri.  Despite a Supreme Court ruling that reversed government’s acquisition of Modiri’s property for use as an access point to Paumen’s Dark Night Tours and criminal charges being brought against Paumen, the land remains contentious.  That’s because up until Tuesday, Modiri’s land, on which a road has been built to bus tourists, had been trespassed on by Paumen’s employees.  We spoke with Modiri earlier today and he granted News Five access to the land in question.  We’ll have that full story in Thursday’s newscast.
