This is a joint defense meeting, which means that only heirs of Jose
Manuel Ballí Villarreal in the La Barreta lawsuit (Cause #1261)
can attend. We will have a checklist at the door of everybody in the
lawsuit. This is a very important meeting and the people attending will
get an update on our appeal of Judge McDowell's dismissal of our case
by summary judgment. La Barreta is our birthright and we will continue
to fight for the return of our land.
Our crusade for justice continues. While the case is on appeal, all
declarations are on hold until further notice. If you have any declaration
questions, please contact Joe Balli at 512-391-0819.
We would like to thank all those involved with the rummage sales. If
anyone is willing to organize a rummage sale and/or if anyone has ideas
how we can raise money for our cause, please contact family member JoAnne
Guzman Elliott at 254-793-3700.
