The Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) discusses two SLAPPs brought by the law firm Kasowitz Benson Torres against Greenpeace and other environmental organizations. One is a SLAPP on behalf of Resolute Forest Products against Greenpeace and Stand.earth, using the U.S. Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. The other is a SLAPP on behalf of Energy Transfer Partners against Greenpeace, Earth First!, and BankTrack, also using RICO. CCR defends Earth First! in this case.
