Fluoride Action Network

New MUST SEE Film on FAN’s Lawsuit

January 16th, 2024 | Stuart Cooper, Executive Director - Fluoride Action Network

Dear Friends:

Attorneys representing the Fluoride Action Network and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) will convene in person today at the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California in San Francisco for the final pre-trial status hearing in our federal lawsuit. The proceedings are not available via live stream, but FAN will issue an update in the next bulletin summarizing the key developments.

Anticipated decisions include whether the last phase of the trial will be live-streamed or recorded as part of the Cameras in the Courtroom program. Throughout this legal process, FAN has consistently advocated for maximum public access to the proceedings. The presiding judge shares this perspective, and our legal team remains committed to presenting this case.

Meanwhile, a new hour-long film on our fluoridation trial has been released, showcasing FAN’s lead attorney, Michael Connett. Produced by Children’s Health Defense (CHD), a nonprofit organization led by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., it also features CHD’s President, Mary Holland. The film includes previously unreleased deposition footage and revealing email communications obtained through Freedom of Information Act Requests. This is a “must-see” movie and serves as a potent tool for educating neighbors and decision makers.
