Opponents of wind farm raise money for group’s lawsuit

ERIE — Supporters of a lawsuit against a Neosho County wind farm project are raising money to continue a fight that likely will take months, The Chanute Tribune reported. A group of 45 landowners filed suit against the Neosho Ridge Wind LLC in July in Neosho County District Court, seeking an injunction against the project and arguing the wind farm will be a nuisance and annoyance that interferes with their ability to use and enjoy their property. Opponents of the wind farm project gathered in Erie Saturday to raise money to pay legal costs. They also received an update on proceedings, and heard the lawsuit is in the discovery phase, a fact-finding period that could take months.
