A coalition of 70,000 landowners is challenging a state Supreme Court ruling that dismissed two lawsuits calling for an expedient end to the environmental review of shale gas development in the state.
The Joint Landowners Coalition of New York brought two lawsuits in February, challenging the state’s delay in finishing its health and environmental analysis of potential impacts from shale gas development.
But on July 14, State Supreme Court Justice Roger McDonough dismissed both lawsuits, saying the petitioners did not have standing to sue Gov. Andrew Cuomo, the Department of Environmental Conservation and the Health Department to compel completion of the review.
The coalition claiming 70,000 members announced Monday that it filed an appeal of the decision.
