Jordan Cove Lawsuits Filed

Landowners and Environmentalists File Lawsuits Against FERC (Sierra Club)

Ten Southern Oregon organizations filed a lawsuit challenging FERC approval of the Jordan Cove LNG export terminal and Pacific Connector pipeline. FERC issued its approval in March, conditioned on the project qualifying for critical permits from the state of Oregon. Three of those permits have already been denied or withdrawn. A group of Oregon landowners impacted by eminent domain filed their own challenge to the project late last week. Many others, including the state of Oregon, multiple tribal governments, and fishers and crabbers, had also all requested FERC revisit its ruling, and have 60 days from FERC’s May 22 denial of rehearing to file their own lawsuits.
