Wind Farm Litigation

Feb 18th, 2012
Experience

Assisted the defense with development of trial themes and strategies in litigation brought against a wind farm by local residents who alleged the wind farm caused them to suffer adverse health effects and emotional distress, harmed their quality of life, and lowered their property values. The plaintiffs alleged intrusions upon their property rights, including low frequency and impulse noise created by wind turbines, and a flicker or strobe light effect when the sun passes through rotating turbine blades. The case settled shortly before trial.
