McLean County officials have filed a motion to dismiss a lawsuit over a Wind Farm outside Ellsworth.
Rene Taylor has filed a civil lawsuit to stop construction on parts of the $700 million project saying she has health and safety concerns about the Twin Groves Wind Farm.
Taylor says a high-voltage substation and three turbines are too close to her home.
The lawsuit also claims that the McLean County Board did not have sufficient facts when approving the project.
The case could be heard in mid-December.
