Litigation Weekly March 30

Plaintiff alleges violations of the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act for failure to prepare river management plans for eight river segments on the Los Padres, Inyo and San Bernardino national forests, as well as BLM lands.  (C.D. Cal.)  (Discussed earlier here.)

The court reversed decisions on BLM resource management plans by two adjacent field offices for failure to consider alternatives with fewer areas open to oil, gas and coal leasing, failure to consider the impacts of the foreseeable combustion of resources that would be sold, and failure to respond to concerns about using outdated science for methane pollution (while dismissing other NEPA challenges).  (D. Mont.)
