From Don Young:
If ever there was a man who deserves legal council, that man is Carter Avenue resident, Steve Doeung. He’s done pretty damn good on his own for the past year and a half, but a relentless Chesapeake legal team is closing in for the kill. While his neighbors caved in or sold out for various reasons, Steve is still standing on principle.
In a courtroom decked out for Christmas, Steve once again managed to fight off the attempted taking of his property for a dangerous natural gas pipeline. A wreath of colored balls hung above the judge’s head and between U.S. and Texas flags. But the mood was not festive.
The judge’s warning to Steve is loud and clear: You need an attorney! Someone needs to step up today. It is a travesty that this man can’t get the legal aid he needs.
This case is a textbook example of an unjust system tilted in favor of a lying and scheming corporate Goilath. The sordid details have been described elsewhere and are now common knowledge. (see below, Steve’s detailed report of today’s court proceedings)
Steve’s humble yet determined actions are helping protect his and his neighbors safety and property. Standing alone on an island of unselfish hope, he has sent his message in a bottle asking for help.
Is there anyone out there who will take this case? Is there anyone willing to stand up to Chesapeake and help Steve help us all?
It is beyond pathetic that no attorney has stepped up to help this man! I don’t care if the bottom line is that he will ultimately lose this battle. That is NOT THE POINT! Someone should stand by his side and help him.
At least help him file for a continuance.
