Whoever said that wasn't the case? WaterRings didn't seem to be objecting to the fact that this dispute has ended up in court, but rather the fact that this dispute was generated in the first place, and that the DEC and the AG have intervened on behalf of the activists when such a trivial percentage of New York taxpayers would benefit from the state's "quest to expand the law."
