The Florida Marine Contractors Association expected to lose this first round. The suit was heard by a "bottom rung" district federeal judge who, in hopes to work his way up, is not going to rule against the Federal "authorities".
FMCA is appealing this decision which is why we are on a "mission" of recruitment for CFFW, it is expected the appeal will cost a minimum of 50 K. FMCA is convinced they can win on appeal. Reason: there is no scientific fact to back up the claims by SMC and the rest. Appeals Courts rule on facts not fiction.
I hope their right. The SMC is making boater's lives miserable. It never ceases to amaze me how boaters are willing to compromise on issues, a word that is not part of the SMC vocabulary.
