CANADIAN COMPANY SUES GREENPEACE OVER FORESTRY CAMPAIGN

06/06/2016

Resolute Forest Products, a Quebec-based company, filed a lawsuit against Greenpeace and others for Greenpeace's campaign ("Resolute: Forest Destroyer") that criticized Resolute's forestry practices. Resolute's complaint included defamation, tortious interference, trademark, and racketeering claims. Greenpeace criticized Resolute for destroying Canada's Boreal forest and woodland caribou habitat. Resolute is one of the largest producers of newsprint in North America. Greenpeace is not yet commenting because, it stated, it has not officially been served with a lawsuit from Resolute. But Greenpeace also stated that it will fully defend itself. For the full story, see http://uk.reuters.com/article/us-resolute-forest-lawsuit-greenpeace-idUKKCN0YN2WJ.
