Legal proceedings in Fishers’ battle to annex 2,200 homes near Geist Reservoir hit a snag Tuesday when the homeowners’ attorneys said they want out.

An opponent of annexation said they wanted more cash.

“They wanted a $75,000 retainer, and we don’t want to pay that,” said Joe Weingarten, a member of Geist United Opposition.

The attorneys for Krieg DeVault, Carmel, wrote in a filing to Hamilton Superior Court Judge Steven Nation that “the attorney-client relationship with the petitioners has been terminated and has become untenable.”

The attorneys asked that a trial date in two weeks be pushed back 30 days.
