This document is about 33 pages.
The Coalition feels that this is exemplary work by Winter King, Peter Broderick and Joseph Petta of the Coalition legal team from Shute, Mihaly and Weinberger.
All legal parties involved are petitioning the court to try and get a quicker hearing date. Right now we are scheduled for June 17, 2015 but we are trying for about June 1st. Will update when we know more.

ACTIVITY IN THE PROJECT AREA
As some of you have been reporting, there is activity in the project area. Right now our legal team is working to make sure that the Army Corps of Engineers is meeting the requirements for the Environmental Assessment (EA)/Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) that was issued by the Corps for this project on April 15, 2015.
There are a number of items in the requirements that have not been met and that should be completed before construction can begin. This has led to multiple emails between the legal counsel of RTC and the legal counsel for the Coalition on the items that would be considered “irreparable harm”. That is still being discussed and worked on.
At this time we anticipate that there will continue to be moving of the effluent line (which includes moving it under the Yori Drain) and some utility work, marking of Cultural Resources, marking of avoidance areas, preliminary marking or staking of boundaries, removal of extensive debris from previous activities, environmental buffers put in place, bringing in some type of construction trailer with utilities and equipment, and maybe some additional brush clearing.
We are working hard on these issues and hope that you all will be on the look out for anything that appears to be any type of excavating or earth-moving at any point in the project area.
