USA: Federal Agencies Urge Washington Court to Dismiss Charges Against Cape Wind

A Washington federal court has been urged by several federal agencies to discharge the claims filed against the Cape Wind project, since the agencies had complied with all relevant laws in their reviews and approval of the project, the Law360 news site writes.

The U.S. Department of the Interior, U.S. Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, U.S. Coast Guard and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers say that their decisions on approval of the Cape Wind were not subjective or capricious, as the complainants claim. The complaint against the agencies was filed by several groups opposing the offshore wind project, including the town of Barnstable and Alliance to Protect Nantucket Sound.

“BOEM, the U.S. Coast Guard and the U.S. Army Corps have satisfied their obligations under the applicable statutes, and summary judgment should be granted for defendants,” Law360 quoted the agencies’ statement.
