Last Tuesday, July 23rd,
Judge James Soto presided over an all-day hearing regarding the proposed
Rosemont Mine in the Santa Rita Mountains.
The lawyers on both sides
gave oral arguments. The purpose was to help the judge decide whether he
will grant an injunction that will stop groundbreaking activities
connected with the mine until he makes decisions on the two cases that
are before him.
He made no decision on
Tuesday, but took everything “under advisement.” He said he will issue
his decision before August 1 (I assume this means on July 31).
We all thought our lawyers
did an excellent job and we feel positive. But, the judge gets the last
word – so, as always, STAY TUNED. For details about the hearing, see
Tony Davis’s article in the AZ Star here.
And, thanks for your support over these many years!!

Oppose tariffs on EU motorcycles parts, and accessories
Sign the petition today!
The Office of United States Trade Representative, as part of a dispute over aircraft subsidies, has proposed 100 percent tariffs on motorcycles imported from countries in the European Union with an engine size between 500cc and 700cc, along with parts and accessories.
The American Motorcyclist Association is joining others in the
motorcycling community to oppose the USTR’s latest ill-conceived
proposal. Motorcyclists should not be penalized with exorbitant tariffs
because of an unrelated trade dispute. Any trade sanctions imposed as a
result of this dispute should come from more closely related industries
To oppose this tariff, the AMA is asking our members to sign this petition.
