The following is a press release I received from the STCC.
On December 30, 2005, the South Tulsa Citizens Coalition (“STCC”) took its case regarding the IVI toll bridge to a higher court and filed an appeal with the Oklahoma Supreme Court. In its appeal, STCC asked the Supreme Court to reverse a ruling made earlier this year by Tulsa County District Court Judge Rebecca Nightingale to throw out STCC’s lawsuit against Tulsa County. Unless the Supreme Court decides to fast track the appeal, a final appellate decision on STCC’s lawsuit could take well over a year.
STCC Spokesman Michael Covey said “The County did not give us any alternative other than to file this appeal. To this day, the County Commissioners as a whole have refused to sit down with the citizens and discuss the issues surrounding the proposed IVI bridge.” Covey added “STCC will continue to represent the citizens of Tulsa County against this type of bad government and STCC is committed to working with the various governmental entities to find a better solution (other than the IVI bridge deal) to our transportation needs in Tulsa County.
