Painted Post Water Export Suit Heard March 1

The first hearing in the lawsuit challenging water exports to a gas drilling company in Pennsylvania by the Village of Painted Post in Steuben County, NY, was held Friday, March 1, 2013, before Judge Kenneth R. Fisher in Rochester. Several environmental organizations in Rochester held a rally outside the courthouse before the hearing. See Rally opposes possible water sale deal, and Groups rally outside Hall of Justice over fracking lawsuit.

As previously reported, the Article 78 proceeding was filed on June 25, 2012, in Steuben County Supreme Court in Bath by the Sierra Club, the Coalition to Protect New York, People for a Healthy Environment and five individual petitioners against the Village of Painted Post, Painted Post Development LLC, SWEPI, LP (an affiliate of Shell Oil Company) and the Wellsboro & Corning Railroad. See Lawsuit Filed Against PP Bulk Water Sale Project. I am working with attorney Richard J. Lippes from Buffalo to represent the petitioners. Several judges in Steuben County and Monroe County recused themselves before the case was assigned to Judge Fisher. Copies of the papers filed in the case are posted on my law office website.
