Please take note of this as an example of one possible approach for Kauai...

This is a letter from Attorney Joe Marmon who is suing the Shasta County Air Quality District. Although I live in LA, I have included myself as a plaintiff in this case. Please contact Joe to take action against these crimes against nature and humanity...

"I am planning on suing Shasta County Air Quality Management District for their breach of their obligations to monitor and ensure the air quality is good for the citizens of Shasta County as well as those who merely pass through Shasta County and have been harmed due to the lack of adequate maintenance of air quality in Shasta County.

I have been an attorney for 24 years now. I am also on the board of the Placer County Sierra Club and am the Vice President of Environmental Voices, a non-profit organization concerned with ensuring a clean environment in which to live. I am a sole practitioner; however I do have a part tie attorney working for me also.

I am choosing to sue Shasta County first before tackling Sacramento County and the US Government, to test the waters and work out the kinks in my lawsuit before tackling the giants.

I will need to file a government claim prior to filing the lawsuit, which is only a procedural requirement to avoid being kicked out of court for the lack of exhausting administrative remedies prior to filing the lawsuit.

I will need some people to serve as plaintiffs to be named in the lawsuit as those people who have sustained some type of damages. Damages could be as simple as stress from observing the spraying of chemical trails from the jets. It can also be degraded water quality, or having damaged plants or gardens on their properties, or even some people lose production of solar power due to decreased sunlight from the film of barium, strontium and aluminum in the air from geo-engineering.

The only downside from being a plaintiff is that the county may have the chance of pursuing the plaintiffs for their costs if they are victorious in the lawsuit. Costs will most likely not include attorney's fees, but typically only includes actual costs of court filings, subpoenas and document and records production. I would guess that total could amount to no more than $2000 throughout the entire case. And we will always have the option to dismiss our case for a waiver of Shasta County pursuing costs if we determine that we will be unable to win the case.

My case will involve a lawsuit seeking monetary damages as well as Writ of Mandate which would be a court order, ordering Shasta County Air Quality to investigate and report on and ensure that they are doing all they can to ensure that Shasta County residents and visitors will have clean air free from geo-engineering substances. I do have two excellent witnesses available to testify in Shasta County. Two are 30 year scientists that are willing to testify to prove the contamination on the ground which most likely comes from the jet spray.

The evidentiary standard for the burden of proof only requires hat I p[rove that "more likely than not" the ground level contamination is coming from the jet-spraying overhead. The civil standard for burden of proof does not require the more difficult criminal standard of "beyond a reasonable doubt".

I will need about 3-6 people that would be willing to be named as plaintiffs. Dane Wigington believes that it would be better to have a hundred names, however I think that would be better on a Petition, rather than having those people named in the lawsuit.

You can call me if you have any questions or concerns."
