U.S. District Judge Elizabeth Kovachevich has set a Nov. 6, 2014 trial date for a legal battle started by the Midnight Pass Society to open the inlet that once flowed between Siesta Key and Casey Key.
The Society, and plaintiffs including Ophelia’s Restaurant, filed the suit in June with allegations that the DEP violated the Clean Water and Endangered Species Act by closing the inlet in 1983, among other complaints.
