The Delaware Riverkeeper Network Defeats Motion to Dismiss Complaint against Sunoco for Clean Water Act Violations

On February 12, 2019, the Delaware Riverkeeper Network (DRN) defeated a motion to dismiss filed by Sunoco Pipeline L.P., thus allowing the case to proceed. DRN’s complaint was filed in June 2018 against Sunoco for their failure to obtain a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit (NPDES permit) for the Mariner East 2 pipeline project. The Court’s decision denying Sunoco’s motion to dismiss sends a strong message that our claims are valid, and that justice will be done regarding Sunoco’s continued violations of the law.
