Officials for a group home that state investigators want closed because they say the youths at the residences are living in dangerous conditions will not get a chance to argue their case to a jury in Cochise County Superior Court now that a judge has denied their request for a trial.

Instead, Cochise County Superior Court Judge David Thorn is ordering the parties involved in the Mary’s Mission and Developmental Center case to submit a schedule so that an evidentiary hearing can be held in his courtroom. The evidentiary hearing is meant to give each party a set amount of time to present any evidence and testimony that will help the judge make a ruling.
