Montana regulators at odds with a ranch for children adopted abroad are asking a judge to order its owners to stop using buildings not up to code.
The Flathead Beacon reports the injunction request comes in a lawsuit by Department of Labor and Industry against Eureka's Ranch for Kids.
State attorneys previously said Ranch for Kids was making efforts to correct its building-code violations, but the injunction request says the ranch has refused to make some corrections.
The lawsuit is separate from a previous one in which District Judge James Wheelis ruled the ranch was not a religious organization exempt from state oversight.
Wheelis set a Dec. 3 trial date in the building-codes lawsuit.
The ranch cares for adopted children who have problems at home, including fetal alcohol-related issues.
