For many years, Ronald Tutor, president and CEO of construction firm Tutor-Saliba, tried to fight local restrictions preventing his Boeing Business Jet from landing at Friedman Memorial Airport in Hailey, Idaho. In 2004 the airport won the lawsuit that Tutor filed, but Tutor appealed and lost again. Finally, the airport sought to recoup its costs for fighting the lawsuit and the appeal, and the result was that Tutor had to pay the airport authority $147,000.
