We spent the morning in Judge Servitto’s court on the Uni-dig case. Greg Lemke who is a photogramitor who used a camera from the air to show how much is left from the original 120,000 cubic yards which should have been lowered to 20,000 cubic yards by June 1st, 2014.
There are two large piles of compost labeled Pile E and Pile F.
Pile E has 54,058 cubic yards and Pile F has 41,193 cubic yards. These measurements are accurate plus or minus 2%. This is much more compost than the Court order allows. The attorney for Uni-Dig now argues that the original method of calculation was better because it shows less compost, however it still far exceeds the amount allowed.
One item of contention is the composition of Pile E: is it finished product or is it debris that needs to be removed.
The judge ruled that Uni-Dig could get the background material on the pictures from the air. Court will reconvene this Thursday, July 24th at 1:30p.m. for what should be the final day in court before the Judge rules as to whether or not they are in contempt and what the remedies will be.
