The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources is being sued, over handling of a controversial frac sand permit. Clean Wisconsin and the Ho Chunk Nation argue DNR secretary Dan Meyer should not have agreed to review a judge’s ruling, invalidating a permit issued Meteor Timber for a proposed $75 million sand processing and loading plant in Monroe County.

Companion complaints filed this week aim to block the ongoing review while a judge considers if DNR rules even allow the agency to potentially reverse a judge’s order. A DNR spokesman declined to comment, citing the pending litigation.
