Lawsuit Filed over ‘Rubber Stamping’ of Offshore Fracking

The Center for Biological Diversity filed a lawsuit against the federal government for “rubber stamping” permits authorizing offshore fracking without adequately reviewing the effects on marine life and coastal environments. The Center’s complaint states that the Department of the Interior, among other defendants, is in violation of three separate laws. The lawsuit could affect all federally permitted offshore fracking, including the 15 platforms in the Santa Barbara Channel.
