Schlumberger court date set

Elmira, N.Y.

A court appearance is scheduled for mid-December on a recent legal action filed by a citizens’ group against the Schlum-berger project in Horseheads.

State Supreme Court Justice Judith O’Shea is scheduled to review the case at 9:30 a.m. Dec. 18 at the Chemung County Courthouse in Elmira.

O’Shea will consider a legal action filed by Ithaca attorney and environmental activist Helen Slottje on behalf of a group of area residents calling itself People for a Healthy Environment.

She will also hear a response from Schlumberger, and from the village of Horseheads, the lead agency in the project’s review.

The citizens’ group has been fighting Schlumberger’s $49 million facility in The Center at Horseheads industrial park, which will provide materials and services to the region’s natural gas drilling industry.
