Next Hearing Date: March 25th
The next hearing in the Four Necessity Valve Turner's legal process will be March 25th at 9:30 am at the Itasca County Courthouse in Grand Rapids, Minnesota.
The Valve Turners have appreciated your support at their previous two hearings, if you can, please plan to come by 9:00 am to rally outside the courthouse - we're always delighted to meet others who care about climate change.
The focus of this next hearing will be logistics for the coming trial - the Valve Turners will have the opportunity to enter their pleas, establish dates for future court procedures, and make the court aware of the legal strategy they mean to pursue.
This is the first major court case for most of the Four Necessity Valve Turners, so if the process sounds confusing or strange to you, know that you're learning along with our team. We are grateful to have excellent legal resources available to us locally and additional assistance offered in the event that this case grows to incorporate a necessity defense. Stay in touch for updates over the next couple of weeks on media appearances, press coverage, and other information!
