Dear STVN Supporters,

We are deeply disheartened and shocked to receive Judge Knipel’s 2 1/2 page decision ruling in favor of the defendants and dismissing our case. The decision is completely devoid of any explanation about how he came to his conclusion. We struggle deeply with why such a short ruling with no logic or analysis required seven weeks to write.
Attached for you review is the decision from Judge Knipel. JudgeKnipelDecision21Sept2015
We will be conferring with our legal advisors over the next few days to determine our next steps, which will likely include an appeal.  If we allow this ruling to stand, it means that government entities are free to hide and mislead the public and do whatever they deem in their discretion, with no accountability or recourse to the public. This is simply wrong and unacceptable.
