Talk about complicated. There are two independent lawsuits captioned Miccosukee Tribe v. South Florida Water Management District. They are the so-called “S-2” case and the “S-9” case. Both involve the moving of dirty water around the Everglades, just different pipes or canals or whatever.
S-9 went to the Supreme Court a few years back (opinion). S-2 went to trial in 2006. It’s on appeal before the CA11. The S-9 district court proceedings are stayed pending that appeal. The Tribe appealed that stay order and now the Eleventh Circuit rejects the appeal — opinion.
So we’ll wait to see how the CA11 decides the S-2 case.
