Judge Hayes dismisses residents’ lawsuit over Ocotillo Wind  

Credit:  By Miriam Raftery | East County Magazine | 30 September 2012 | eastcountymagazine.org ~~

U.S. District Court Judge William Hayes has dismissed a lawsuit filed by Community Advocates for Renewable Energy Stewardship (CARES). The group sought an injunction to halt construction of the Ocotillo Express wind energy facility on public land. Hayes ruled that the plaintiffs lacked standing.

CARES had filed suit against Pattern Energy, the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management and federal officials. The group, formed by local residents in Ocotillo and represented by attorney Bill Pate who owns a home in Ocotillo, had alleged that the project was approved without proper engineering reports and that the site lacks adequate wind resources, among other allegations, as ECM has previously reported: http://eastcountymagazine.org/node/10987 and http://eastcountymagazine.org/node/10107 .
