UPDATE: Judge Pritchett recused himself and neither Clarkson nor Bloodworth would take the case. We are currently awaiting the Missouri Supreme Court to assign a judge to our case. Our Temporary Restraining Order hearing was originally scheduled for 1:30 today (Thursday), we hope that a judge will be assigned prior to City Council's meeting on Monday evening. ORIGINAL POST: In an effort to keep our customers up to date on SEMO.net's legal proceedings, I wanted to share with you our newest filing.

Dear Friends, Associates, and Citizens of Poplar Bluff, I've tried every possible way to convince our city leaders and managers to come to a reasonable solution regarding Open Access over the past ten months. We have advised the City that we believe they are breaking a number of Missouri laws. Back in December, we began paying for Open Access using the City's dispute process, the city still has not scheduled our dispute hearing. On several occasions we have been warned that the City will accelerate our termination from the network and Monday's council meeting Agenda is set to discuss a "revision" to the Open Access Policy. I can only assume that is their intent. Every attempt of ours has failed.Mar 18,
