71st & Harvard lawsuit this Thursday


The summary judgment hearing that was continued from last week is coming up Thursday at 3 p.m., Judge Gassett's courtroom on the fifth floor of the Tulsa County Courthouse.

To repeat what I said earlier: Attorneys for the homeowners say that it would be helpful for people to be in attendance, so that the public interest in the case would be evident. Please note that I am NOT suggesting you call the judge or try to lobby him in any way. Judges do not respond well to that kind of treatment. Just show up if you can -- come early to be in the courtroom on time -- sit quietly and observe the proceedings.

This case is about your ability as a property owner in Tulsa to protect yourself against arbitrary rezoning of neighboring property or your own property. The City Attorney's office is wants the judge to declare protest petitions invalid. The judge and our elected officials need to see that homeowners want these protections to remain in place.
