Laird Lucas of Advocates for the West, a conservation group that’s providing legal representation for Highway 12 megaloads opponents for free, said after today’s ITD hearing, “I feel like we did a good job of showing the judge that people who live and work along Highway 12 really stand to be injured by these mega-shipments. I know he’ll take it seriously, and we’ll have to wait and see what his decision is, but I’m hopeful he’ll agree that we should be allowed to intervene.”
