FANTASTIC BREAKING NEWS: Golden State Water lost again!
First, Ojai won in lower court when Golden State Water sued to prevent Casitas Water from taking over the system. 
Second, GSW appealed that decision in appellate court and lost. 
Today, the State Supreme Court refused to hear GSW’s final appeal. Ojai and Claremont are now free to proceed against GSW. This is a huge blow to Golden State Water, and their high priced legal team. This is a very important result. 
Now if the majority of GSW customers in our Cowan Heights System truly want GSW gone, it can be done!
