A Treasury Department official said Monday that President Barack Obama‘s decision to block two Chinese nationals from acquiring wind farm projects in Oregon can’t be reviewed by the judicial system, possibly making moot any lawsuit.
On Friday, Mr. Obama took the rare step of blocking two Chinese nationals from acquiring wind farm projects off the coast of Oregon, citing national security concerns. The White House said the sites are all within or near restricted air space at the Naval Weapons Systems Training Facility Boardman in Oregon.
The company that tried to acquire the projects, Ralls Corp., suggested on Friday that it would challenge Mr. Obama’s decision in court.
