Clint Schumacher spoke last week at a summit organized by opponents of two planned toll roads in Norman, Oklahoma. Opposition group Pike Off OTA held the summit to update residents on the progress of two lawsuits that have been filed, as well as other opposition tactics that attorneys and the organization plan to launch.
While speaking to the group of protestors, Schumacher compared the fight to the victory won by Texas Against High-Speed Rail, which fought in district court and the state supreme court to prevent Texas Central Railway from using eminent domain. While Texas Supreme Court affirmed the company’s right to using eminent domain, by the time the fight was over, Texas Central was broke.
“The president [of TCR] had already resigned, the board disbanded, and there was no one left working in the organization,” Schumacher said.
