IMPORTANT:  The highest court in the land has just requested briefing from the U.S. Solicitor General on whether or not it should grant a writ of review in the Rinehart case!!!  Attorney James Buchal reports that if the U.S. Solicitor General files a brief in support of acceptance of the petition, "the chances that the Supreme Court will take the case go up very significantly."

Listen up my fellow nugget heads:  This is the time to forget about whatever Honey Do List you are working on.  If you can write a sentence, or better, if you can afford a stamp and can type a sentence IN YOUR OWN WORDS TO PRESIDENT TRUMP as to how important this case is, then do so NOW.  Don't worry about your grammar or punctuation.  Just express yourself in the unique and genuine way that only you can.  Tell President Trump how you have suffered under your California overseers.  There is a relatively short period for the (current) Acting Solicitor General to get his brief filed.  He needs to be told by his boss ASAP how miners feel about the importance of this case so that states like California can't keep prohibiting owners of federal mining claims from operating their own claims without any hope of economic survival in areas that largely have few alternative economic opportunities!

Let's not sit on our hands.  Let's get some justice!  Get something in the mail by tomorrow!!

Thanks for listening to my rant.

Martin -- If you could provide a mailing address (and "Attn" to), and if they are accepting email an addy and Subject line title, this would be most helpful.. I think many folks willing to contribute won't do so due to the hassle of digging out an address.. Thanks..

This is my first draft, which like Micro Nugget says, should be made to your own words"


Mr President,


Have the U.S. Solicitor General grant a writ of review in the “Rinehart case” S222620 heard before the California Supreme Court on 22 Aug 2016.

California miners have suffered under the state’s dredging ban on federal land since December of 2009  The Mining Law of 1872 does not allow the state government to improperly impede miners. The state of California to date has issued no permits nor developed procedures for these permits in seven and a half years since the ban, thus impeding the miners.






Also, contact info for solicitor general, (No E-Mail)
