USA: Public Trust Sues Jaxport
The Public Trust Environmental Legal Institute of Florida said it intends to sue the Jacksonville Port Authority over plans to dredge the St Johns River shipping channel.
The lawsuit involves Jaxport’s refusal to disclose information given to Martin Associates that is being used as the basis for the expenditure of hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to dynamite and deepen the St. Johns River harbor.
Representatives of the Public Trust Environmental Legal Institute of Florida and the St. Johns Riverkeeper will be present at the press conference to provide copies of the legal papers and to answer questions about the lawsuit.
