South Portland seeks dismissal of suit challenging ban on oil loading in harbor

from Portland Press Herald

The city has asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit by the Portland Pipe Line Corp., saying that the company cannot claim damages from a city ordinance because it has "no current plans" to reverse the flow of the pipeline to bring Canadian crude oil to Portland Harbor. The city is defending its Clear Skies ordinance, approved last summer, which bans loading crude oil into tankers in the harbor and effectively prevents the company from reversing the flow of its South Portland-to-Montreal pipeline to bring Canadian tar sands oil into Maine. more
