On Monday, February 27th, Federal Judge John Jones held a telephone conference to discuss Plaintiffs Nevin Mindlin, Eric Jenkins, and Rev. Earl Harris’ request for a Temporary Restraining Order against Harrisburg’s Receiver David Unkovic.
Counsel on the call included Plaintiff’s attorney, Paul Rossi and attorney Sean Kirkpatrick on behalf of the Governor and the Receiver. Also permitted to hear the call were Neil Grover, Esquire of Debt Watch Harrisburg (a taxpayers advocacy group) and Devin Chwastyk, Esquire of McNees, Wallace, & Nurrick, the firm representing Dauphin County in these matters.
Judge Jones denied the Plaintiffs’ request; however, the Judge did schedule an Injunction Hearing for March 21st and 22nd in order to hear the Plaintiffs’ arguments of the unconstitutionality of Senate Bill 1151.
