AG: Federal suit for fracking study still possible

AG: Federal suit for fracking study still possible by Jessica Bakeman, September 27, 2012, State Politics
Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said Thursday the door is still open for another federal lawsuit seeking an environmental impact study of natural gas drilling. Schneiderman’s lawsuit against several federal agencies that was meant to force a study on the impacts of hydraulic fracturing in the Delaware River Basin was tossed by a federal judge this week. The judge, however, did not prevent New York’s attorney from filing again in the future, if and when the Delaware River Basin Commission issues regulations. Addressing whether he would re-file, Schneiderman said Thursday: “It really depends on what happens. … We have the ability to pursue this further down the road,” he said.
