UPDATED: 71st & Harvard suit NOT in court Monday


UPDATE 8/14: The hearing has been postponed to August 26th.

UPDATE: The correct time is 3:00 pm. Changed below.

The lawsuit filed by homeowners late last year over the violation of their civil rights by city officials in the 71st & Harvard / F&M Bank zoning case will be before Judge Michael Gassett Monday, August 16, at 3:00 pm, in the Tulsa County Courthouse. Here's a link to the case file on OSCN for Homeowners for Fair Zoning et al. v. City of Tulsa and F&M Bank and Trust Company. On Monday Judge Gassett will hear a motion for summary judgment from the attorneys for the City of Tulsa and F&M Bank, which, if granted, would end the trial before the case can be heard on its merits. Monday is also a scheduling conference to determine when the trial will proceed.

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.
