Case Summary Citation

2011 WL 3330821 (D. Mont. Aug. 3, 2011)

Abstract

In Alliance for the Wild Rockies v. Salazar, the United States District Court for the District of Montana upheld the constitutionality of a congressional rider that removed Endangered Species Act protection for gray wolves. In an order granting the defendants’ motion for summary judgment, the United States District Court for the District of Montana found the congressional delisting of gray wolves was constitutional because, according to Ninth Circuit precedent, the language “without regard to any other provision of statute or regulation” included in the rider removed any Separation of Powers concerns.
