Tom Boy West and Team Fracker are batting 0 for 3. First they lost Dryden, then Middlefield, now the Middlefield court has denied their motion to re-open the case.
And ignoring West’s theatrics
Tom Boy also threatened to sue the town for a “regulatory taking”. He didn’t follow through on that threat because it was completely specious. As in fracking nonsense.
So what’s a fracking lawyer to do ? Go back to being a fracking lobbyist maybe ? Or continue with the pricey histrionics for his bovine clients ?
On their nickel . . . will he or won’t he appeal the appeal now that it has lost its appeal ?
Or will he dodge another fracking embarrassment and just stick to being a shale shill ?
And persuade towns to simply knuckle under and turn over the keys to the frackers – before the final regulations are even published.
