FERC Appeals Decision on FOIA Request Regarding Palomar Gas Pipeline Proposal

FERC has filed a notice of appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit on a ruling this summer by a federal magistrate requiring FERC to comply with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request of two environmental groups regarding the Palomar natural gas pipeline project. The FOIA request seeks mailing lists used by FERC to notify landowners along the planned route of the proposed Palomar pipeline of public hearings regarding the pipeline, which is associated with the Bradwood Landing LNG project. The lower court ruled that FERC must produce the mailing lists. The documents related to this case, including FERC’s Notice of  Appeal, are available in the PACER system under Docket No. CV 09-936-HU.
