Environmental Groups Ask for Court Stay of Dominion Cove Point LNG Authorizations

EarthReports, Inc. (d.b.a. Patuxent Riverkeeper), Sierra Club, and the Chesapeake Climate Action Network have filed a motion with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit requesting an immediate stay of two FERC orders authorizing construction and operation of the Dominion Cove Point LNG export terminal in Lusby, Md., and to halt all construction on the project.  The groups requested the stay asserting that they will suffer irreparable harm if it is not granted and arguing that they are likely to succeed in their court challenge that FERC’s review of the project under the National Environmental Policy Act was insufficient.   The groups requested a ruling on their motion by June 17, 2015.
