- In a stunning and surprising defeat for the government
and its proponents of secrecy, a U.S. District Court Judge in Phoenix,
Arizona, rebuked a Department of Defense attempt to deny a group of UFO
activists the opportunity to argue its case in court.
- In the federal lawsuit, Citizens Against UFO Secrecy
(CAUS) vs. the Department of Defense, Judge Stephen M. McNamee, ignoring
the government's plea to dismiss the case outright, set February 7th at
10:00 a.m. for arguments on the adequacy of the govenment's search for
information about an unusual aerial object.
- Though CAUS, which had brought the lawsuit under the
Freedom of Information Act in 1999, submitted numerous affidavits from
witnesses who had observed the aerial object, the Department of Defense
continues to maintain that it could find no information confirming the
existence of this object. The aerial object, seen at tree-top level by
many of the eyewitnesses, is described in court papers as the size of a
football field, triangular in shape, with the ability to hover and is virtually
soundlesss. The hearing is open to the public.
- The U.S. District Court is located at 230 First Avenue,
Phoenix, Arizona. Judge McNamee's courtroom is on the 6th floor.
