The Chinese company that President Obama blocked on Friday from building four wind farms near a Navy training facility in northern Oregon has filed a lawsuit, saying the president’s order exceeded his authority. The executive order President Obama issued Friday directs Ralls Corp. to divest its interest in the wind farm projects that it recently acquired due to national security concerns. It does not specify what the risks are, however. The wind farm sites are all within or in the vicinity of restricted airspace at Naval Weapons Systems Training Facility Boardman. Because of the president’s broad authority over national security, the company is unlikely to win its suit, reported Reuters.
