A bunch of grandstanders is what this whole fiasco was about. What from I've read and from news accounts, there really wasn't anyone there who genuinely is concerned about environmental matters -- just people with an agenda. Ted Yoakim, the head lawyer for the golf course folks, and Robin Whitaker Pierce, the woman who never saw a TV camera she didn't like, were both there to drum up support for their ever weakening lawsuit. The judge has thrown out 10 of their 12 allegations as lacking any credibility. As I recall, the EPA did testing for more than two years and found nothing, nada, in the form of water contamination. Without any evidence of contamination, what's left of their lawsuit? These people have been snookered; lives sent in a tailspin because the city of Chesapeake didn't know what they were doing when they botched the original testing and the Pilot sensationalized it. From that point, it snowballed. If there's arsenic in their well water, where's the beef? Yea, I know. It's a conspiracy!!
