Court dismisses US Green Building Council lawsuit

The United States District Court in New York City on Wednesday dismissed a lawsuit brought against the U.S. Green Building Council.

Henry Gifford and others brought the lawsuit against the USGBC. The court ruled Wednesday that none of the plaintiffs in the action had alleged or could allege any legal interest to be protected by their lawsuit.

The court dismissed the federal false advertising claims. The plaintiffs are barred from filing a new suit based on those claims.
