Latest on Blue Springs Bottling Permit

With regards to the Writ of Certiorari filed months ago by attorney to Blue Springs Properties against Gilchrist County…

OSFR is working with attorney William Ogle, Gainesville.  We have been granted, by all participating parties, to provide to the court an Amicus Curiae brief on behalf of Our Santa Fe River, Inc, and it’s members.
a googled search of legal description below:

Amicus Curiae

Definition:  Latin term meaning “friend of the court”.  The name for a brief filed with the court by someone who is not a party to the case.

“… a phrase that literally means “friend of the court” — someone who is not a party to the litigation, but who believes that the court’s decision may affect its interest.”  William H. Rehnquist, The Supreme Court, page 89.

We will be stating our concerns with another water bottling plant.  Mostly saying that which has not already been articulated by Mr. Bill McPhearson, attorney for Gilchrist County.

There have been some substantial efforts being made to protect our environments in Florida.  Please read the following posts to get caught up.

Still not convinced that the Springs Bill being proposed has our interests at heart or more likely developers.  Watch this one closely.
