Sauk-Suiattle Indian Tribe brings second lawsuit against City of Seattle in Skagit dams controversy [updated with pleadings]

In a second lawsuit brought by the Sauk-Suiattle Indian Tribe against the City of Seattle regarding the Skagit Hydroelectric Project, the Tribe requests an order restraining Seattle City Light from “greenwashing” itself; i.e., advertising itself as environmentally responsible. The Tribe claims that Seattle should be restrained from greenwashing until the city provides fish passage at its three Skagit River dams.
