Anyone want to share court costs for filing an injunction against the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County?

On my way out of Salemtown this morning I drove by the Metro Water facility and confirmed what Demetria Kalodimos reported last night in a Channel 4 investigation: that MWS construction workers had started removing petroleum contaminated dirt (tainted in places at rates higher than the safe or legal levels) to bury in the 60-year-old basement of their demolished incinerator with PCB, lead and arsenic laced debris.

As I left, a construction worker was puttering around the heavy duty vehicle like he was going to fire it up again.

If I understand the Chancery Court requirements correctly, the court costs of a temporary injunction against Metro to protect the quality of our watershed and our health in the event of future floods and leaching of petroleum toxins from the basement into our communities are around $300. Anyone interested in splitting the cost of an injunction to try to restrain Metro Water from dumping this soil in their new neighborhood landfill?
