Pigs Gun Club, Inc. v. Sanpete County

In Pigs Gun Club, Inc. v. Sanpete County, 2002 UT 17, 42 P.3d 379, the Court dismissed the claims of late-filing claimants who sought to join the timely-filed notice of their neighboring landowners. The late filers argued that the County had sufficient notice of their claims due to their proximity to the timely-filed landowners and to the fact that they were harmed by the same alleged negligence. Applying strict compliance, the Court concluded that although the parties' claims were similar, the parties themselves were not the same--there was no legal relationship between the neighboring landowners.
