REGARDING LEGAL ACTION FILED AGAINST HSTA ON MAY 27, 2015

We have received the court filing and are currently reviewing it. The filing of the motion for the temporary restraining order (TRO) on the HSTA elections was anticipated. The HSTA will be submitting responses to the court and we fully expect a decision in our favor.

Our board of directors, by a 21-8 vote, made a decision for a revote. The decision was made with care and diligence and we will continue to move forward with the elections.
