Wind Turbine Advocates Leaking Legal Documents To Gain Public Opinion Fails

Wind Turbine Advocates Leak Legal Documents Frustrated By Court Shut Down Of Turbines


Anonymous sources confirm one of the people seeking to intervene in the Falmouth wind turbine case leaked the motion to intervene to the news media days before it was received by the Falmouth town attorney on October 18, 2017.

A news leak is the unsanctioned release of confidential information to news media.

What motivated this leak of confidential litigation documents is the frustration that the Falmouth Zoning Board of Appeals found that the two town-owned wind turbines are a nuisance.On June 20, 2017, Massachusetts Superior Court Judge Cornelius Moriarty agreed with the Falmouth Zoning Board and shut down both turbines.

The wind turbine advocates are filing an appeal to intervene in a legal case in which the time to appeal has long since gone. 

Documents and interviews were given to the media prior to the issuance of legal motions to all sides. In what looks like an effort to gain public opinion and a Falmouth Select Board meeting decision as the wind turbine advocates wanted the town to take their side.

A vote in favor of the legal motion by the Falmouth Select Board would place taxpayer cash into the motion to defray costs of the wind turbine advocates.

The non-biased publishing of judicial pleadings or in this case a motion by the local news media may enjoy public interest privileges but attorneys and "others" who assist in facilitating this exchange of information may not be so fortunate. In other words, the news media did nothing wrong.


Attorneys that accommodate this uncontrolled appetite by providing judicial pleadings to the press and on the internet through emails etc. may find themselves and their firms named in claims for defamation by the parties they originally sued or many types of litigation.

This is especially true if the attorney utilizes the pleadings as a litigation tool by transmitting them to the news source without solicitation or for example uploads the pleadings onto their firm’s website without publishing the opposing parties’ responsive pleadings and/or interjects their "own" biased commentary regarding the judicial pleadings when interviewed by the press.

Falmouth Board of Selectmen met Monday, October 23, 2017, in executive session to discuss the motion to intervene.

The board considered the motion presented by Green Center Inc. and the residents who presented the motion.

The Falmouth Select Board voted to take NO action at 5 PM October 23, 2017

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
