Rally & Hearing to Keep Coal out of Oakland
January 10 @ 8:30 am - 12:00 pm
Join No Coal in Oakland for a rousing rally before the court hearing that could put an end to developer Phil Tagami’s lawsuit against the City of Oakland. Folks are planning a presence outside the Federal Courthouse in San Francisco at 8:30 a.m. The hearing will begin promptly at 10 a.m.; please arrive no later than 9:30 a.m. for a good chance of getting a seat in the courtroom.
OBOT’s, the City of Oakland’s, and Sierra Club/SF Baykeepers’ Motions for Summary Judgment will be heard in the courtroom of US District Judge Vince Chhabria. At this hearing, Judge Chhabria could decide the case and call off the trial if he considers that one side or the other is entitled to prevail as a matter of law. If he decides that a trial is needed, this hearing will be followed by a Pretrial Conference at which the final details of the trial starting on January 16 will be set.
No Coal In Oakland supporters are encouraged to come and observe the courtroom proceedings as well as participate in the rally beforehand. Wear a red T-shirt in the courtroom to show strength.
To get past security at the Federal Building, you must present government-issued picture ID such as a driver’s license. Judge Chhabria’s courtroom is Courtroom 4 on the 17th Floor.
Please RSVP if you plan to attend.
