Recording of Cell Phone Brain Tumor Litigation Webinar now Available
On Wednesday, April 28, we held a webinar about the cell phone brain tumor litigation. I interviewed attorney Hunter Lundy, one of the leading tort attorneys in the US who has been part of this litigation for over a decade. Unfortunately, we had some technical difficulties and many people had a problem connecting to the webinar. Fortunately, it was recorded and it is now available to watch. Watch the recording of the webinar.
Lawsuit Filed in the UK to Stop 5G
For the past year, UK activists have been preparing to file a lawsuit against their government over the deployment of 5G. The activists hired one of the UK’s most prominent human rights barristers, Michael Mansfield. The legal effort was initiated in May 2020 when the attorneys sent a “Letter Before Action,” a requirement before filing the lawsuit itself. Finally, in March of this year, after the government ignored the requirements of the letter and the evidence that was provided, the lawsuit was filed. This type of lawsuit in the UK is known as a request for a “Judicial Review.” It is quite similar to a “Petition for Review” which is the name in the US of lawsuits that challenge government actions. Read our article about the lawsuit.
Success: Hunger Strike in Italy Succeeded to Stop Radiation Exposure Limit Increase
On April 13, Stop 5G activists in Italy began a hunger strike to protest the Italian Parliament’s intention to increase the allowed Radio Frequency (RF) radiation exposure levels. This intended increase was initially part of a Covid Recovery Plan bill. Over 100 people joined the hunger strike, and the protest was successful in its goal: the version of the bill that was voted on by both houses of parliament on 4/27 and 4/28 did not include the increase to the exposure levels. Following this success, on 4/30, the activists will terminate the hunger strike. Read our article about the hunger strike’s success.
OTARD – Case Update
April 26, 2021 was the last day to file a case against the FCC’s OTARD rule amendment.. CHD was the only organization that filed a case, and that is good news. It means we will not be forced to collaborate or file joint briefs with anyone and will be able to lead the case the way we think is best. We are moving forward with the case and yesterday filed the proposed schedule with the court. According to the proposed schedule (which was agreed to by the FCC), CHD will file its main brief by June 9th. The FCC will have 60 days to respond and its response is due on August 9. CHD’s reply to the FCC response will be due on 21 days later, on September 1st. We are now awaiting the court’s order regarding the schedule. The Court’s denial of our motion for the emergency injunction is not an indication of our chance to win the case. We do, in fact, have a good case. We expect to be done with the case, including a court decision, within a year. Read more about CHD’s case against the FCC’s OTARD rule amendment.
