RHINELANDER - A family that sued Oneida County and lost, now wants the U.S. Supreme Court to hear the case.
The Jaros family filed a petition Monday asking the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case.
The family wants to build a large, year-round bible camp on Squash Lake west of Rhinelander.
They sued Oneida County and the Town of Woodboro in Federal Court in 2010.
The Town of Woodboro requested the Oneida County Planning and Zoning committee deny the request.
The county did.
The family believes the town and county discriminated against them.
The court threw out the case but the judge did tell the family that part of their case could be re-filed in state court.
The brothers re-filed their case this past November.
That case is still in court.
The family also appealed the judge's decision.
The U.S. Court of Appeals upheld the lower court's decision this past December.
Newswatch 12 spoke with the brothers Tuesday.
They believe they have a good chance of having the U.S. Supreme Court accept their case to be heard.
They say the U.S. Court of Appeals has ruled differently in similar cases.
The brothers also say the Supreme Court has ruled favorably in similar cases.
Four of the nine justices on the Supreme Court would have to vote to accept the case for it to be heard.
