Nobody should be a “defendant”. The Sacketts’ 3-bedroom home plans don’t threaten anybody, least of all the environment. This isn’t nuclear waster, fer chrisake. The federal bureaucrats should be the “defendants” for butting in where there’s no need and they don’t belong.
The EPA should be in the docket along with the local and state governments. Especially all of the bureaucrats involved should be held personally responsible for Civil Rights violations, RICO and extortion. It wouldn't hurt to have some discovery to ID the neighbor snitch.
