DALLAS, Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to media and other inquiries, Michael J. Bowe of Kasowitz, Benson Torres, LLP, today issued the following in response to a statement issued by Greenpeace: "Notably, Greenpeace's response to this suit was not to defend the truth of its challenged statements, but to attack the lawyers who exposed those statements as false. Greenpeace also points to an earlier case against it without mentioning that it was forced to admit in that case that its challenged statements were not factual, as it will be forced to do here. Finally, no one reading Energy Transfer's detailed 180-plus page complaint would think it is a SLAPP suit. Our laws hold accountable those who intentionally make demonstrably false statements, and there is no special exception for Greenpeace."
