Attorneys for cycling legend Greg LeMond and developer Tim Blixseth are asking the Montana Supreme Court to reconsider portions of a recent ruling in a long-running property dispute.

The high court ruled July 14 that LeMond holds a legitimate damages claim over the sale of Yellowstone Club property for which LeMond said he had a contract.

The ruling dismissed Blixseth's counterclaims, but left unresolved how much LeMond should receive in compensation.

Blixseth says LeMond's claim was based on a settlement connected to the Yellowstone Club's bankruptcy. Since Blixseth was not a party to that settlement, he says he shouldn't be bound to it.

LeMond's attorneys say they have no argument with the ruling's results, but want justices to clarify some details so a lower court can fairly determine compensation.
