START YOUR CLOCKS NOW: If You Received a CDO, On April 28th, you will have fifteen minutes to present your case, cross examine witnesses, present evidence, etc. You will NOT be allowed to repeat testimony from other parties and of course, you will or will not be allowed whatever the Chairman determines you will or will not be allowed to present. If your individual case is "scientifically" complicated and involves a lot of technical experts, tough. Fifteen minutes, buster. Thus are your "rights" secured. All fifteen minutes of them. Also remember, this will be considered a "fair" hearing. Fifteen minutes. Oh, and if you don't show up and don't receive a continuance, you "will be in default and will be deemed to have waived the right to testify at the hearing," which may put you out of the "rights" loop forever. So, Good luck to us all in the land of the free, home of the brave, fifteen minutes of justice for all. The Proceedings for April 28, 2006 CDO hearings now online at www.waterboards.ca.gov/centralcoast/los%o2osos/index.htm.
