Chapter 2 #Vermont #fracking #pipeline update

Opportunity to Attend Hearing

The Supreme Court has (astoundingly)  said it wants the names of everyone who wants to attend the April 4 hearing about whether it is legal for Vt Gas to use eminent domain to construct its pipeline through Geprags Park. 

We need to let the Court know that there are at least 100 of us who want to be there. I believe the Court will move the hearing to a bigger space if it knows there are a lot of people who want to attend.

Please contact the Court before March 9 if you want to attend. 

The hearing will be "oral argument” which consists of the lawyers stating their cases, and members of the Court asking them questions. It will last about an hour and is very formal. (no signs, no cheers or boos, etc.) The hearing will last one hour. It is scheduled to take place in the Vt Supreme Court courtroom in Montpelier on April 4, 9-10 a.m.

If you would like to attend, please send a respectful email to  

 JUD.SupremeCourt@vermont.gov 

My email will say:

"I plan to attend the oral argument in the Vermont Gas case on April 4 at 9 a.m.  I understand Vermont Supreme Court hearings are open to the public.

Sincerely,
