October 19, 2010 |

Henry Gifford, a Manhattan building energy consultant and outspoken critic of LEED, has filed suit against the USGBC seeking class action status and alleging fraud, false advertising, antitrust, and RICO violations. Gifford claims the USGBC has duped the public by claiming its LEED rating system makes buildings save energy and that the LEED Accredited Professional credential is worthless. The USGBC says it does not comment on pending lawsuits.
