TULSA, Oklahoma -- A federal judge in Tulsa has set a hearing for December 14, 2011 on a request for a preliminary injunction to stop construction on a wind farm in Osage County.

The Osage Nation is suing the company building the wind farm, claiming the wind turbines and electrical lines would interfere with oil production and harm the ecosystem in Osage County.
