The question of where Snowball the deer should live out her life will likely be decided this afternoon.

Clackamas County Judge Eve Miller will hear arguments from both sides and could rule at the end of the hearing.
Geordie Duckler, the attorney for Jim Filipetti will argue that state agents wrongly took the deer, essentially property, from Filipetti and should return the deer immediately. Attorneys for the Department of Justice, the lawyers for ODFW, will argue just the opposite.

If ODFW wins, Snowball will be sent to the Rossi Posse elk ranch sometime next week.

I will be in the courtroom and will have full details at 5pm and 6pm on KGW Northwest Newschannel 8.
