The Danville Register from Danville, Virginia (2024)

a a The Register: Danville, Tuesday, March 27, Gathright Testimony Concluded; Decision Seen By End Of Week ROANOKE (AP)-Testimony in the Gathright Dam case came to halt in midafternoon Monday in U. District Court here with the question still undecided of whether the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers can continue to build the dam. U.S.

District Court Judge Ted Dalton indicated a written decision in the case, which ran almost 10 days, will not be made at least until the end of the week. Dalton told attorneys in the case he wants them to file with him no later than Thursday any "further thoughts" they may have. Mrs. Gladys Kessler, an attorney representing the National Wildlife Federation and other environmental groups seek- ing to block further construction on the dam across the Jackson River above Covington, asked Dalton for a period to file posttrial briefs in the case, The judge, who said he has made it a practice, to make; a decision at of a trial, said he would give her and other lawyers until Thursday to file the additional comments and legal citations. The end of the testimony in the trial left the question of the award of a $19 million contract for further building of the dam up in the air.

There had been testimony the contractor on the project had given the Engineers only until Thursday award the contract. That testimony indicated the project will have to be readvertised and deferred for a year if work i is not started by April 1. Asst. U. S.

Atty. Paul Thomson gir. asked Dalton for permission Monday to the contract pending the decision. Thomson said the award did not mean an actual notice to proceed would be given. Dalton said he wouldn't do that.

Thomson had objected to. Mrs. Kessler's request for time to file posttrial briefs with the judge before the decision is made. Thomson said the Engineers are working "in a critical time frame" because of the contract. He said typing the transcript of the full trial, a huge document, would take time and would be needed for the filing of postrial "We're not seeking to delay things any further," Mrs.

Kessler told Dalton, but she added she thinks the postrial briefs are needed for final summation of the case. Dalton, who seemed at one point ready to hear summations from the lawyers for both sides, said he would give them until Thursday to submit additional papers. The judge said he didn't want to hear oral arguments in the case Thursday and he wouldn't make his decision at that time. Dalton, who mentioned the possibility the case will go all the way to the U. S.

Supreme Court, said he has to make a decision that "may stand for a long, long time." The issue, he said, "is not a transitory one but one that affects the future." He said he will study carefully the issues in the case and "I'll do my best to take them up and come up with the best answer I can." Dalton said the case "all comes down to whether or not" the Engineers "acted capriciously or arbitrarily" in deciding, in a final environmental impact statement, to proceed with new construction on the dam. This decision, he said, will have to be made by "considering the totality of all the circ*mstances and the applicable law." There can be no "compromise" decision in the case, Dalton said, because either side will be unhappy with what he does and will appeal to the 4th U. SV. Circuit Court of Appeals and possibly to the U. S.

Supreme Court. As the case closed Monday, Bath County Extension Agent Lester Dalton testified the county needs the dam--most of which would be formed in the county--for economic reasons. "we are bound to have recreaHe a told Judge Dalton that tion. If we don't, we die. It is that simple." Two Arrested Nansemond Man Shot To Death; Wife Abducted, Raped And Shot NANSEMOND, Va.
