Off to Albany!

NYS Court of AppealsToday is the day! Several members of DRAC are on the road to Albany to support Deborah Goldberg of Earthjustice as she battles against Tom West representing Norse Energy. Goldberg will argue that Dryden has the right to prohibit fracking through zoning.  New York is a Home Rule state – meaning that local towns have the right to designate land use and that cannot be trumped by the State. The two lower courts have ruled in favor of Dryden. This final decision, expected in late fall, will set precedent for the entire State of New York.
