Classic “sue and settle”

Conservationists settle lawsuit after the government agrees to conduct a comprehensive environmental analysis of the drilling project. Following the conservation groups’ opening brief in the case, the Forest Service agreed to withdraw approval of the project.” 

So what’s wrong with this?  Better to gamble taxpayer dollars on a losing hand?

  1. Way to go USFS! The requirement for NEPA analysis to include single and complete projects and taking a hard look at the effects is how old? Sorry to hear some Forests haven’t learned. The conservationists weren’t asking for much and could have pressed forward.
