FERC Agrees to Pay Attorney Fees to Oregon Non-Profit Groups in FOIA Action

Last month FERC agreed to pay $63,000 in attorney fees and costs to Columbia Riverkeeper and Willamette Riverkeeper, two environmental non-profit groups. The settlement of this issue, available on the PACER system under Docket No. CV 08-936-HU, is part of a broader resolution of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) suit brought by the two groups seeking the names and addresses of interested parties that FERC notified of a public hearing regarding the proposed Palomar natural gas pipeline associated with the Bradwood Landing LNG project.
