Congratulations!
(update on TRO Hearing for THP 031)

Congratulations to all those who appeared last Thursday at the Courthouse in Eureka to witness Dan Ehresman argue the TRO hearing against Frank Bacik and Jared Carter. While the Court was held in closed session, the enormous public interest exemplified by your participation and attendance (over 70 people! a record number) was noticed. The Times Standard ran a front page photo and article on Friday, including a quote from the Times Standard attorney that "All hearings in all other cases are to open to the public." Other eyes took note as well. Further, the fact of the closure is being brought forward to the District Court of Appeals in San Francisco as Dan appeals the denial of the TRO. Not going quietly to the slaughter is how we the people bring about change.

Thank you for doing your part so well
