In legalese, this is the "Memorandum of Law in Support of Petitioners-Plaintiffs' Verified Petition and Complaint," part of the Article 78 lawsuit brought by the Joint Landowners Coalition of New York against Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Dept. of Environmental Conservation Commissioner Joe Martens, and State Health Commissioner Nirav Shah, requesting the court to force them to release the draft SGEIS shale drilling or "fracking" regulations. This document lays out the various state laws involved in the case--laws that have a bearing. It also lays out previous case law and decisions being used by the JLCNY's attorneys as justification for their complaint/request to the court. The judge will use this to evaluate the legal arguments brought forth by the JLCNY.
