Environmentalists trying to block construction of a military landing field in Washington County say the Navy picked the site for political reasons. A filing in U.S. District Court accuses the Navy of adapting environmental studies to justify its choice and pressuring a naval expert to fabricate support for it. It asks a judge to permanently halt work on the outlying landing field until the Navy conducts a proper environmental study. A Navy spokesman had no immediate comment.
