We are sorry for the delay in updates, but we were having significant computer issues. After finally getting all computer problems resolved we are providing an update on the opposition brief(s) that were filed by the Army Corps of Engineers and the Regional Transportation Commission (RTC) in the 9th Circuit with their opposition comments to the Coalition's opening brief filed July 14th - that asked for the 9th Circuit to halt construction until our case can be heard on it merits.
The opposition briefs by the Corps and RTC (respondents) were filed on Aug 4th. Of course their documents did all they could to make us appear to be wasting their, and everyone else's, time and to make the Coalition appear to be uninformed and ignorant of facts; and of course this project is for the good of all mankind. Please remember that they want to make us look as bad as possible.
The Coalition gets the last word in this process before we get to court at the 9th Circuit. Our reply to their opposition is very succinct and does an excellent job in countering all the respondents claims of the implied Coalition's idiocy. This brief is to be filed on Aug 14th and shortly after it will be available on the website and an update with a link will be provided.
WE NOW HAVE A COURT DATE FOR THE 9TH CIRCUIT!
OCTOBER 19, 2015
UPPER SOUTH EAST COMMUNITIES COALITION v. US ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS, et al
James R Browning US Courthouse
95 7th St. San Francisco, CA
We encourage all who can come to mark your calendars and join the Coalition Board of Directors in court!
Visit our website's UPDATE page to view the briefs by the Corps and RTC. We had to remove the supporting documents from RTC as their filing was almost 400 pages and would not download. So the text is all that is there.
