*Large Industries Sue to Stop Environmental Activism *
Invoking the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act, a
federal conspiracy law devised to ensnare mobsters, some large companies
are going after organizations, as well as individual employees and
activists. Resolute Forest Products and Energy Transfer Partners are two of
the companies involved in going after environmental groups and bringing
suit against those that fund the organizations. While named organizations
are asking that these suits be dismissed, if the process takes long enough
and ultimately costs enough, it could serve as a model that may limit the
tactics of environmental groups, especially those with limited resources or
funders wary of lawsuits.
