Going to court with an auctioneer, not a judgeTOWNER, N.D. — I was back in the courtroom again recently. No, it’s not what you might think. No judge, jury, lawyers or witnesses. Just a bunch of uncomfortable ranchers and an auctioneer gathered to renew the leases on pasture and hay land owned by the state of North Dakota.
