Lawyer: Donald Trump could take his off-shore windfarm legal fight to Europe

Donald Trump could take his legal fight against a off-shore windfarm to Europe after his appeal was rejected by the Supreme Court, according to a lawyer.

Mr Trump lost his Supreme Court fight against proposals to build an 11 turbine wind farm near his golf course in Aberdeenshire today.

The US presidential candidate had asked five Supreme Court justices to allow his appeal over the scheme off the Aberdeenshire coast, which was approved by the Scottish government in 2013.

However, lawyer Shabana Anwar, who is based at law firm Bircham Dyson Bell and specialises in planning laws for energy projects, said Mr Trump could now carry on his fight at the European Court.

“The project, which is expected to generate enough electricity to power 68,000 UK households a year, may finally go ahead if the Supreme Court rejects Trump’s challenge,” she said

“A decision to this effect will be a relief for the Scottish Government, but Mr Trump may still not give up just yet. He has one last avenue open to him, the option of taking his case to the European Court – which he has threatened to do in the past.”
