Groups Sue Port of Seattle over Shell Drilling Fleet

The Port of Seattle in early February signed a two-year lease with Foss Maritime Co., whose client is Shell, to rent 50 acres across from downtown Seattle. The lawsuit says the port violated state environmental laws when it did not do a review before signing the lease. The lawsuit asks the court to vacate the lease.
