In early June an Obamadroid federal judge vacated a permit for the Weymouth compressor station, the last piece of Spectra Energy/Enbridge’s Atlantic Bridge pipeline project–a project which took years to build (see Obama Judge Overturns Air Permit for Weymouth, MA Compressor Stn). Even so, Enbridge kept on building the plant (see Weymouth Compressor Continues Construction Despite Judge’s Ruling). It’s a good thing Enbridge kept building because a panel of judges from the same court (First Circuit Court of Appeals) yesterday reversed the earlier decision. The court said the permit is reinstated (at least for now) because Enbridge will likely win its lawsuit to complete the project.
