GS Clean Tech Corp. filed the complaint in federal court against Blue Flint Ethanol LLC, which operates a plant at Underwood.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages and an injunction to stop Blue Flint from using the process, which recovers corn oil from a byproduct of ethanol.

A judge granted Blue Flint an extension until June 10 to respond to the lawsuit. Officials with the company did not return repeated phone messages left by The Associated Press.
