As a brief update to the “Animal Rights Group Seeks Injunction to Halt Wind Project on ESA Grounds” article we posted on September 4, 2009, the Court in Animal Welfare Institute et al. v. Beech Ridge Energy LLC held a 4-day bench trial, which ended on October 29, 2009. The Court currently has the case under advisement, but once the Court issues an opinion, we will post a new article describing the implications from the Court’s opinion. Stay tuned.
