Trump signing Executive Order to push the construction of the Keystone XL and Dakota Access pipelines, 24 January 2017
Kasowitz, Trump, et.al. need to move to Russia where people were serfs very late and don’t have much experience with freedoms. Their SLAPP attacks on Free Speech; Freedom of the Press; Freedom of Assembly have no rightful place in the USA. Perhaps because their ancestors were late migrants from oppressed lands they don’t understand the American way. We are not serfs! Did Kasowitz, Trump, et. al. flunk Civics and US History?
News Release from Greenpeace.org:
“Greenpeace Response to Energy Transfer Partners Lawsuit
In response to Energy Transfer Partners’ filing today of a lawsuit against Greenpeace and other defendants, Greenpeace USA General Counsel Tom Wetterer said:
“This is the second consecutive year Donald Trump’s go-to attorneys at the Kasowitz law firm have filed a meritless lawsuit against Greenpeace. They are apparently trying to market themselves as corporate mercenaries willing to abuse the legal system to silence legitimate advocacy work.
This complaint repackages spurious allegations and legal claims made against Greenpeace by the Kasowitz firm on behalf of Resolute Forest Products in a lawsuit filed in May 2016.
It is yet another classic “Strategic Lawsuit Against Public Participation” (SLAPP), not designed to seek justice, but to silence free speech through expensive, time-consuming litigation. This has now become a pattern of harassment by corporate bullies, with Trump’s attorneys leading the way.” http://www.greenpeace.org/usa/news/greenpeace-response-to-energy-transfer-partners-lawsuit/
