NC Supreme Court Declines WI77 Appeal
Marking the end of the legal effort to stop the I-77 toll project, last Friday the NC Supreme Court announced they have declined to hear our appeal.
We are obviously disappointed with this latest development and the results of our legal efforts. The courts have consistently sent the message that the I77 toll issue is a political, not a judicial, issue. Fortunately, political solutions remain open with the inclusion of our “complete and delete” option in the Mercator report. However, the only way this will become reality is through sustained public opposition to the project.
To those who wrote affidavits, contributed to our legal expenses and helped us fundraise, we offer our sincere gratitude. We hope you find some solace in the fact that we kept our promise to fight the legal battle as far as we could.
will be meeting shortly to discuss the necessity of maintaining our 501(c)3 status vs continuing on as a different entity.
