SUPERFUND: Obama admin, company align against N.C. dump's neighbors in Supreme Court showdown -- Tuesday, April 8, 2014 -- www.eenews.net | sustainablity | Scoop.it
ASHEVILLE, N.C. -- A group of landowners’ case, CTS Corp. v. Waldburger, will be heard by the Supreme Court this month. CTS is attempting to use a technical legal argument to prevent the case from going to a full trial. The company claims that Asheville residents took too long to file their claims. The case is complicated and entangled in esoteric legal terms, so it has gone largely unnoticed by Supreme Court watchers. But it has grabbed the attention of at least one major player, the federal government, which has intervened and sided with CTS.
