Update on PA Municipalities' suit against Act 13
We, the fracktivists, were instrumental in the recent first win of this law suit. If granted by the court there will be an 'argument' held in October, in Pittsburgh. We don't know more than that right now, but will provide details as soon as available.
Please start rounding up your 'troops', we need a big show of support in October. Get the word out, help coordinate car pools in your town/neighborhood. Questions? Post a comment here or email: email@example.com
From John Smith, lead attorney on this law suit:
The state entities appealed to the Pa Supreme Court, which was expected. The state filed a motion for expedited consideration of the appeal which we will join, albeit, for different reasons.
As the rules allow and as a cautionary measure, we will also be filing a cross appeal probably next week regarding a few of the issues that did not go our way.
The court will decide in the next week or two whether it will grant an expedited review for October.
If the relief is granted, the argument will take place a little closer to home in Pittsburgh. The argument would be open to the Public.
All counsel believe that fracktivists' as well as our clients' collective determination were instrumental in our
first win. Why risk a winning formula, let's all keep up our efforts!
