Fracking Complaint Filed by Earthjustice

A California lawsuit filed by Earthjustice in Alameda County Superior Court on behalf of the Center for Biological Diversity, Earthworks, Environmental Working Group and the Sierra Club accuses the California Department of Conservation, Division of Oil, Gas, and Geothermal Resources with failing to consider or evaluate the risks of fracking, as required by the California Environmental Quality Ac. More than 600 California wells were fracked in 2011.

Kassie Siegel of the Center for Biological Diversity’s Climate Law Institute said “By turning a blind eye to fracking, California officials are letting oil companies endanger our air, our water and our climate.”
