19 DCT Order

An excerpt:

Plaintiffs Oneida Seven Generations Corporation (OSGC) and Green Bay Renewable Energy, LLC, (GBRE) filed this action against the City of Green Bay pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 1983 alleging the City violated their rights to substantive and procedural due process when the Common Council voted to revoke a conditional use permit it had granted only one year earlier. The case is before the Court on the City’s motion to dismiss for failure to state a claim pursuant to Rule 12(b)(6) of the Federal Rules for Civil Procedure. The City also contends that the complaint fails to allege facts showing GBRE has any interest or suffered any loss in the transaction and that OSGC lacks capacity to sue under the laws of the Oneida Nation under which it was chartered. For these reasons, as well, the City argues that the claims against it should be dismissed.
