PHOENIX – This afternoon Apache Stronghold filed an appeal of U.S. District Court Judge Steven Logan's February 12, 2021, ruling refusing to prevent the giveaway of sacred Oak Flat to Rio Tinto/Resolution Copper before the completion of litigation.  The U.S. Government agreed earlier not to proceed with the land transfer "any sooner than" March 11, 2021; however, Judge Logan refused to stop the giveaway even though a trial will last far beyond that date and the giveaway will happen during the trial without an injunction to stop it.
