Biofuel refinery opponents say state is ignoring their appeal hearing request

December 9, 2018 |

In Delaware, the Delaware Audubon and the League of Women Voters of Delaware who won a ruling in January to keep their appeal in a lawsuit against Delaware City Refinery’s plan to expand its ethanol biofuel operation, said the state has not yet scheduled a hearing for their appeal.

“We still don’t have a resolution nearly a year after winning our case,” Ken Kristl, an attorney who represents the civic groups told Delaware Online. “State boards have a mandate and a legal responsibility to carry out their duty and that’s what we’re asking the court to make sure happens in this case.”

Richard Legatski, chairman of the Coastal Zone Board, told Delaware Online that scheduling a meeting has been “logistically difficult. It’s very hard to get a loosely organized nine-member board to get a quorum together. I have not seen the complaint but the Attorney General’s Office is in the process of contacting all nine members now to get some dates together.”
