Next Hearing June 8 - THANK YOU For Your Incredible Support. Help Us Keep Spreading the Word!
First and foremost, we would like to extend a HUGE THANKS to all of you who have supported our cause. In less than 5 days, we have raised over $7,500 for our legal defense. We have been truly overwhelmed and humbled by this wonderful outpouring of support. As expressed in a recent Los Angeles Times editorial (http://articles.latimes.com/2010/may/20/opinion/la-ed-chevron-20100521), it's clear that the trajectory of this case has far-reaching implications well beyond our own struggle. We know that your pledge is not simply for our legal defense against Chevron but for the much larger issues at stake in this battle. This is a critical month for us as we continue to fight for what we believe is right.
As reported in the New York Times, (http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/05/21/reprieve-for-filmmaker-in-dispute-with-chevron/), we are moving forward with this case. The United States Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit has scheduled a hearing for June 8th to consider our request to suspend the Chevron subpoenas during the pendency of our appeal.
As our defense forges ahead, we thank you once more for your support and ask that you continue to spread the word about our fund. We *must* meet our goal of $20,000 by the end of June in order to receive your generous donations, so we hope you will continue to share this link with friends and family who may want to help. As we've said before, that figure is only a fraction of what we will need in this battle to defend our First Amendment rights, holding fast to our principles--and footage--so we hope you will continue to propel us toward meeting the goal.
Thank you all again.
