The Wisconsin Supreme Court heard oral argument on January 8, 2015 in Oneida Seven Generations Corp. v. City of Green Bay, 2013-AP-591, on whether the City of Green Bay was within its rights to revoke a conditional use permit for a waste-to-energy facility that the City maintains was obtained by Oneida Seven Generations Corporation through misrepresentation regarding the potential environmental hazards of the project. Ted A. Warpinski argued on behalf of the City before the Supreme Court.
The Circuit Court for Brown County, the Honorable Marc A. Hammer presiding, upheld the City’s decision to revoke the permit. On March 25, 2014, the Court of Appeals reversed the Circuit Court decision in a per curiam decision. The Wisconsin Supreme Court granted the City’s Petition for Review on September 18, 2014. A decision is expected to be issued by the Supreme Court later this term, which ends in June.
