GTH attorneys, William Lynn and Amanda Nathan, successfully represented Northwest Baptist Seminary and Blue Ribbon Cooking, LLC in obtaining a conditional use permit to hold weddings at North Tacoma’s Weyerhaeuser Mansion. The decision followed a four day hearing, with two groups of appellants represented by separate counsel challenging the permit.
