Lawsuit seeks complete reassessment of Schlumberger project in Horseheads
|A citizens' group concerned about the potential environmental effect of the Schlumberger Technology Corp. project in Horseheads is going to court to try to halt the work.|

The group's attorney, Helen Slottje of Ithaca, said the action challenges the legality of the temporary facility already operating on-site.
