A Chinese company is planning to sue the President over actions it claims are unConstitutional.
According to Ralls Corp., a company that builds wind farms, President Barack Obama halted a project in Oregon. The company wants to be paid for the losses it incurred — losses it claims will be near $25 million.
Last week, Obama issued an order giving the company 90 days to sell four of its wind farm sites. Plus, he ordered that all of its equipment must be gone in two weeks.
The President believes that the green company, which has several locations near a U.S. Navy test site in Oregon, could be a national security threat.
But Ralls Corp. claims there are many other wind turbines in the area and that Obama’s order is a violation of the Constitution.
“The selective and arbitrary singling out of Ralls’ project drives our effort to seek redress in U.S. courts,” said Tim Xia, counsel for the company. “We are confident that the courts will vindicate Ralls’ rights under the law and the Constitution and we intend to pursue the remedies that the law makes available.”
Legal analysts say the courts will be reluctant to question the President’s decision.
Ralls is being advised by the assistant attorney general and solicitor general from George W. Bush’s Administration.
