Two business owners opposed to the Northern Pass project won't get to pursue their lawsuit against Public Service Company of New Hampshire.

The co-owners of Owl's Nest Resort and Golf Club in Campton and Thornton in northern New Hampshire said news of the proposed a 187-mile electrical transmission line across the state hurt their business. They said when the project was announced in 2010, their sales fell and their business faced bankruptcy.

A Grafton County Superior Court judge threw out their lawsuit in late October. The two businessmen asked the court to reconsider, but the judge has since denied their motion, saying they did not raise any new facts that weren't already considered.
