Citation: 2 ELR 20647
No. No. 754, 4 ERC 1657/(E.D.N.C., 07/21/1972) On reconsideration, motion to reduce bond for preliminary injunction

Upon reconsideration of its order that plaintiffs be required to post a $75,000 security bond to maintain a preliminary injunction against the Chicod Creek Watershed project (2 ELR 20185), the Court denies plaintiffs' motion to reduce the bond to a $100 nominal amount within the plaintiff's financial capability and directs plaintiffs to post the $75,000 bond within five days. For subsequent opinions concerning the bond issue in this case see 2 ELR 20467, 2 ELR 20555, and 2 ELR 20648.
