Society of the Plastics Indus. v. County of Suffolk – Case Brief Summary (New York)

In Society of the Plastics Indus. v. County of Suffolk, (77 NY2d 761, 573 NE2d 1034, 570 NYS2d 778 [1991]), the Court of Appeals took a less than broad view of individual standing for legal challenges to a government or quasi-government body's compliance with SEQRA, because, as the Court of Appeals noted, SEQRA compliance litigation was particularly susceptible to "interminable delay and interference with crucial governmental projects" by "special interest groups or pressure groups, motivated by economic self-interests, to misuse SEQRA."
