Groups that challenged federal permits for a Taiwanese company's plastics complex have now taken Louisiana's air quality permits to court.

The lawsuit filed Friday says the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality made only minor changes to permits requested by the Formosa Plastics Group member called FG LA LLC.

The Louisiana department says it cannot comment on ongoing litigation.

The company says it followed all regulations and is committed to protecting the health and safety of its employees and the public.
