The Imperial Irrigation District will not file a response to Mike Abatti's petition to the U. S. Supreme Court unless the Court requests one.

IID General Counsel , Frank Oswalt , explained that no response was necessary. " After a thorough review of Mr. Abatti's petition , it was the unanimous conclusion of counsel that there is almost no possibility that the United States Supreme Court will grant the petition." Oswalt also said , " There is absolutely nothing raised by Mr. Abatti's Petition for Writ of Certiorari that merits any attention by the U. S. Supreme Court. Our litigation attorneys are communicating the IID's position that no response is needed and we expect the Court will swiftly reject Mr. Abatti's latest filing."
