Hearing on Motions for Summary Judgment
January 10, 2018 @ 9:00 am
OBOT’s, the City of Oakland’s, and Sierra Club/SF Baykeepers’ Motions for Summary Judgment will be heard in the courtroom of US District Judge Vince Chhabria at the Federal Courthouse in San Francisco. Unless Judge Chhabria decides the whole case on summary judgment, this hearing will then lead to a Pretrial Conference at which the final details of the trial starting on January 16 will be set. No Coal In Oakland supporters are encouraged to come and observe. To get past security at the Federal Building, you must present government-issued picture ID such as a driver’s license. Judge Chhabria’s courtroom is Courtroom 2 on the 17th Floor. The hearing will begin promptly at 10 a.m.; we encourage No Coal in Oakland supporters to arrive no later than 9:30 a.m. for a good chance of getting a seat in the courtroom.
