BOZEMAN - A retail group that says the city of Bozeman wrongfully declined to issue a permit has filed a lawsuit against the city.
California-based Red Mountain Retail Group filed the lawsuit earlier this week in Gallatin County District Court.
The group owns the Hastings Shopping Center in Bozeman, and says the city didn't issue a permit to allow a Goodwill Industries thrift store to open.
City officials say the retail group has failed to complete promised work at the mall, and that it has also failed to meet city codes.
Red Mountain Retail Vice President Eric Nelson says the company has completed the required work.
