Today was our hearing at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, and as stated in previous updates as something that could happen, the court did not make a decision today.
Our legal team did an excellent job of presenting the case that the District Court Judge misinterpreted the law when denying our request for a preliminary injunction on June 3rd.
The Coalition was unaware that the 9th Circuit streamed their hearings live and did not know to inform you, so we are attaching a link for you to view the proceedings yourself on youtube:
Skip to 1:36.45 to view the Coalition legal team presenting our case.
None of the cases heard today received resolution on the spot. If the Court tended to agree with us, there could be a ruling within a few days. If they do not agree with us, then it could take longer. We want to give you the process of what could happen now.
So now everyone waits until the 9th Circuit issues their decision. RTC can continue work as we all wait. Of course we will let everyone know as soon as we know. Just a reminder, as soon as the CLOMR is released, RTC can begin construction-destruction in the Rosewood Lakes Golf Course
Meanwhile, we wanted to point out to everyone the story in Sundays paper on the SEC where RTC states that construction at this time is employing 50 people and if they prevail, they will be able to ramp up to 150 people. We were wondering if you all remember like we do, RTC claiming from just after the time of the economic crash (about 2009) to the Reno City Council and others, that this project would create thousands of jobs. Councilman Dortch mentioned it over and over again when RTC was seeking City approvals.
Well, well, well. Imagine that.
