SEC Final Report

USECC Lawsuit Documents

On November 19, 2015, the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of California dismissed the lawsuit that had sought to stop construction of the SouthEast Connector. The Upper South East Communities Coalition (Coalition) filed the lawsuit, alleging the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and RTC of Washoe County did not adequately examine the project’s environmental impacts and violated both the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the Clean Water Act. On Nov. 18, the Coalition filed a stipulation for dismissal, seeking to voluntarily dismiss its lawsuit. The dismissal follows major federal court decisions denying the Coalition’s requests for an injunction.
