The News and Observer’s latest editorial claims that the Civitas Institute Center for Law and Freedom(CLF) is fighting the Desert Wind Project on the Coast of North Carolina for political reasons.
That’s simply not true.
The truth is that this case is about the Rule of Law – a fundamental principle in any free society.
Civitas is not raising concerns about properly values, risks to creatures of the air, etc. The legislature raised these concerns when it enacted a 2013 law requiring permitting of wind energy facilities. CLF clients seek nothing more than fair application of that law.
The fair application of the law. That’s what CLF is fighting for in this case and in all our cases, we’re fighting for the individual rights of all North Carolinians.
The Center for Law and Freedom is a public interest law firm at the Civitas Institute. It provides free legal representation to North Carolinians facing violations of their constitutional rights.
In North Carolina, the Left dominates the courts. An army of liberal attorneys stand at the ready to fight for liberal causes.
For Conservatives, CLF is the only public interest law firm in the state. It’s the most powerful tool we have to fight for conservative ideas where the battle rages most fiercely – the courtroom.
If we want to be effective at keeping North Carolina headed in a more conservative direction, we must have a voice in the courts, and we need your help to make CLF as strong as possible.
