Plaintiffs’ Reply and Pretrial Brief Filed in Wind Lawsuit

On Friday, we filed Plaintiffs’ Reply and Pretrial Brief in Animal Welfare Institute v. Beech Ridge Energy, which previews for the Court arguments Plaintiffs will advance at trial regarding the “take” of Indiana bats as a result of the Beech Ridge industrial wind project’s construction and long-term operation.  The brief was accompanied by rebuttal declarations of three of the nation’s premier bat biologists that reinforce Plaintiffs’ position that Indiana bat deaths and injuries are very likely to occur based on the available data.  The trial is set for October 21-23 at the federal district court in Greenbelt, Maryland.
