9th Circuit Revives Lawsuit Over Pebble Project

To protect the greatest wild salmon fisheries in the world, the Obama administration sought to restrict the Pebble Mine Project.  A move later dumped by the Trump administration.

Conservationists sued, but a federal judge found the Trump EPA’s decision unreviewable and dismissed the case.

On Thursday, a Ninth Circuit panel ordered the case remanded to determine if the EPA’s about-face was “arbitrary, capricious, an abuse of discretion, or contrary” to federal law.
