Greenmail

Greenmail is a form of extortion used to discriminatory PLAs on private and public development projects. Union activists will threaten to file costly environmental lawsuits that will delay the start of construction unless companies with close ties to big labor are used on the project. It may sound like something out of the Sopranos but it is an all too common tactic used to blackmail developers and politicians.
