As Promised, The F-35 Joint Strke Force Is Going To Court

The city of Valparaiso in Okaloosa County filed a 58 page lawsuit Monday against the U. S. Air Force in Federal Court.

The suit seeks an injunction blocking the F-35 Joint Strike Force from coming to Eglin Air Force Base.

Valparaiso officials have been upset for months that the Air Force would not release impact studies which the city claims would show a negative impact the move would have on those close to the base, like the city of Valparaiso.

THe lawsuit asks the federal courts to halt all ground breakings, movement of aircraft and personnel.

The community is divided on the issue and there have been pickets, billboards and debates over the issue.

A hearing date on the request for an injunction has not been set yet.
