Lawsuit Against Mississippi Silicon Dismissed 

A lawsuit seeking to stop Mississippi Silicon’s construction has been dismissed by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi.

Mississippi Silicon is very pleased with the ruling issued by the federal judge for the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Mississippi to dismiss Globe Specialty Metals’ complaint and request for a preliminary injunction to halt our project. The court previously denied a similar request by Globe shortly after Globe filed this particular lawsuit. This decision confirms that this lawsuit filed by Globe against Mississippi Silicon was without merit. Our position is clear – Mississippi Silicon has and continues to act in good faith and in accordance with strict permits properly secured. – John Lalley, Vice President of Finance for Mississippi Silicon
