Seneca Meadows files appeal on clay mine ruling

Seneca Meadows Landfill has decided to appeal an appellate court’s ruling that dented its hopes of opening a clay mine near its Salcman Road facility.

Lawyers representing the Seneca Falls landfill have filed paperwork asking for two things in light of the Fourth Judicial Department Appellate Court’s Feb. 3 ruling denying Seneca Meadows the right to use an access road it needs to truck clay to the landfill.

Amy Reichhart, an attorney with Nixon Peabody’s Rochester office, has filed a motion with the Fourth Judicial Department Appellate Court asking to re-argue the earlier ruling. The paperwork claims the court “overlooked or misapprehended” certain key facts and misapplied the law in reversing state Supreme Court Justice W. Patrick Falvey’s March 2016 decision allowing for the access road.
