The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia granted the Obama Administration’s motion to dismiss a case filed by Ralls Corp., a company owned by Chinese nationals that attempted to acquire wind farms in the U.S., on October 9. The company claimed that the president should have disclosed the information he used when issuing presidential orders in September 2012 preventing the acquisition of four wind farms. The court found that Ralls had not alleged it was deprived of a protected interest and that, even if there was a protected interest, the company received sufficient process prior to deprivation.
