JLCNY Fracking Lawsuit against NYS

The Joint Landowners Coalition of New York is ready to file a lawsuit against Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State.
The Joint Landowners Coalition of New York is ready to file a lawsuit against Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York State.

The pro-drilling organization says the State's hydrofracking moratorium, which is now in its 6th year, is illegal. JLCNY attorney, Scott Kurkoski, says landowners are disappointed that it has come to needing to take legal action. However, Kurkoski said that no other state has ever put a moratorium in place. He says New York has been looking at the issue for five years, while other states have issued guidelines and permits after studying fracking for much less time. The JLCNY is waiting to file its lawsuit until it collects more donations to help pay for legal costs.
