5 Big Green Groups File Another Lawsuit to Stop Mountain Valley Pipe

This simply must stop. We MUST begin to countersue (monthly/weekly/daily if necessary) the Big Green radical groups that continue to bring a flood of lawsuits against legally permitted pipeline projects. We must!

A few weeks later, the radical Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the Southern Environmental Law Center, on behalf of more than a dozen environmental groups (the including the ones previously listed) sued the Virginia Water Control Board for approving MVP’s application for stream crossing permits (see Big Green Files Lawsuit Against VA Regulators for Approving Pipe).

On Wednesday, five Big Green groups, including the Sierra Club, West Virginia Rivers Coalition, Indian Creek Watershed Association, Appalachian Voices, and the Chesapeake Climate Action Network sued the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in federal court over the Corps’ approval of the project. Enough! Start to sue back! Here’s the details (and a copy of) the latest lawsuit by Big Green radicals…
