Opponents will move ahead with lawsuits  

Opponents to wind farm projects in the town of Cohocton will have their day in court.

Supreme Court Judge Marianne Furfure ruled Wednesday Cohocton Wind Watch, a group opposed to local wind farm development, may go forward with three pending lawsuits filed last summer. The lawsuits are designed to stop construction of the 50-turbine projects in Cohocton.

Last fall, attorney for Canandaigua Power Partners, the wind farm developer, requested Furfure dismiss the lawsuits, saying opponents had no legal standing.

But Furfure has ruled opponents did have the right to legally challenge the wind farms.

Allegations against the projects by Cohocton Wind Watch include flawed special application permits for the projects and other procedural errors.

Attorney David P. Miller, who is representing Cohocton Wind Watch, said he will meet with his clients Monday to consider filing a stop work order against the projects.
