Golden State vs. Casitas Court Case
On February 24, 2014, Judge Kent Kellegrew (a new judge on the case) listened to Golden State and Casitas arguments and said he would make a decision soon. Read OVN 2/26 paper for full story. As soon as we hear his ruling we will post it here.
Many believe the Golden State suit has no merit and was used only as a delay tactic to prevent Casitas from issuing bonds, which 87% of the voters approved in last August measure V ballot measure. So far, the delay has cost the Ojai Golden State rate Payers over $1.7 million (see updated numbers below). On January 29, 2014 judge Borrell ruled Ojai FLOW can represent all rate payers as a “Class” in a suite against Golden State for damages associated with the delay.
On August 27, 2013, nearly 90% voted YES
It has been:
196 days 4 hours 10 minutes 40 seconds
Golden State’s lawsuit is costing us
- $9,315.00 – per day
- $388.13 – per hour
- $6.47 – per minute
- $0.11 – per second
Don’t fool around with Ojai,
FAREWELL GOLDEN STATE!
We went over the top, with 87.4% voting Yes.
This is unheard of and we should all be proud to be part of such a united community. This election will go down in history and used to show that people
can control their destiny.
