Casitas and Ojai FLOW file rebuttals to Golden State Appeal

On August 19, 2014, Golden State filed their appeal. On October 26, 2014 Casitas filed their rebuttal and on October 28, 2014, Ojai FLOW filed theirs. We now wait for Golden State to file their rebuttal to Casitas and Ojai FLOW, then the court will set a date to hear the case. We expect that date will be in January 2015 and the Court has already granted Casitas’s motion for “calendar preference” to have the case scheduled for oral argument at the next available oral argument hearing date thereafter. We will post the hearing date as soon as it’s known. Mark your calendar to check back and please feel free to come to the hearing. You can click on the above to read the documents which are filed on our web site under Reference for Casitas, Golden state and Ojai FLOW.

On October 31, 2014, the Golden States court challenge has cost us rate payers $4 million dollars because we don’t have Casitas water rates
(see counter below).
