Footprint lauds plant ruling

SJC likely to hear case in March


“It’s great news for us,” said Keenan, who has been widely criticized for trying to exempt the plant from appeals like the one filed by CLF.

“Now we have some certainty,” he said. “It’s not as quick as you’d like it to be, but now people who are financing the project are seeing we’re going to have some certainty very soon.”

Footprint sees the ruling as a “positive step ... and moving this thing in the right direction,” the mayor said.

The Salem News was not able to reach the Conservation Law Foundation for comment on a filing released late yesterday.
