Judge backs Pebble in dispute with EPA


A federal judge has approved a request for a subpoena compelling a former Environmental Protection Agency official to explain his actions in the agency’s controversial decision to prevent a proposed gold mine from being built in southwestern Alaska.

U.S. District Judge H. Russel Holland signed off on the motion on Thursday in Anchorage, setting the stage for a potentially dramatic confrontation between former EPA biologist Phillip North and the would-be developers of the Pebble Mine.
