Lawsuit Filed to Challenge FERC Approval for Natural Gas Infrastructure Project in New York. A local environmental organization and a married couple filed a petition in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals for review of FERC’s order authorizing the New Market Project, which includes expansion of an existing natural gas compressor station on a site abutting the married couple’s farm and home in New York. The petitioners asserted that FERC arbitrarily and capriciously departed from D.C.
