Binghamton Ban in Court yesterday (video)

Team Slottje-Heath did a great job yesterday
defending the Binghamton Ban on Hydrofracking
before Hon. Ferris D. Lebous. Broome County State Supreme Court.

Robert Wedlake and Ken Kamlet (both with Hinman, Howard & Kattell)
represented the petitioners.

There were about 30-40 people observing, a nice turnout.

While IANAL, it seems this lawsuit is highly defective.
They plaintiffs filed months after the statute of limitation had expired,
and the plaintiffs lack standing (no injury in fact).

Here is commentary from Binghamton Mayor Matt Ryan
and a member of the defense team, Joe Heath:

May you, and all beings
be happy and free from suffering :)
-- ancient Buddhist Prayer (Metta)
