Now What Happens?
It will be approximately 180 days before the judge renders a decision in the matter. But now that the six-month legal fight has begun, fundraising for legal fees and scientific experts is critical.
Were You Named an Affected Party?
On Wednesday, the judge instructed individuals who are named affected parties to align with a group. (The judge’s written order listing all affected parties is available here.)
Alignment with Us
Stop 3009 Vulcan Quarry/Friends of Dry Comal Creek is represented by a leading environmental law firm, Frederick, Perales, Allmon & Rockwell, who will be building the case, writing briefs, conducting discovery and deposition on the applicant, organizing expert testimony, documents, and more. Aligning with our group allows you to remain involved as a named affected party—and at a much lower cost to you in time and dollars.
Important to Know
Our attorney represents our group as a whole—not any one individual. Cost for legal representation and scientific experts in the six-month contested case hearing is estimated at $150,000. So far, we have raised over $30,000 and invested over 10,000 volunteer hours.
Not Named an Affected Party?
If you couldn’t make the meeting on Wednesday, you aren’t an officially named party—even though you are sure to be affected by Vulcan’s quarry! But you can stay in the game by becoming a contributor. We will carry on the fight for you—but we need your help!
How to Contribute
The minimum contribution to align or become a contributor is $500 per household.
