Pending wind farm lawsuits  

The issue

The status of the two pending lawsuits seeking to invalidate the special-use permits that would allow two companies to build wind farms in Stephenson County. The two companies are Navitas Energy of Minneapolis, and Freeport-based EcoEnergy LLC, a division of The Morse Group.

The Last we knew

Two lawsuits were filed against the wind-farm companies earlier this year by property owners objecting to the projects. The cases have been assigned to Judge Robert Hanson in Ogle County

THE LATEST

Both lawsuits were up for a first appearance in court Tuesday in Ogle County before Judge Hanson. At the hearing, Hanson ruled on a number of motions related to the cases. Among other things, Hanson dismissed certain defendants who were named in the lawsuits, including County Board Chairman John Blum, County Clerk Vici Otte, and Zoning Board of AppealsChairman Jim Yeoman. The suits as a whole, however, were not ruled upon.

What’s Next

A conference call on these cases will likely be held in December, attorneys say.
