Case Summary Citation

Save Our Cabinets v. U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service,___ F. Supp. 2d ___, 2017 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 82252, 2017 WL 2345667 (D. Mont. May 30, 2017).

Abstract

The latest sequel in Montana mining cases, Save Our Cabinets v. U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, concerns the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s and the U.S. Forest Service’s approval of the Montanore Mining Project in the Kootenai National Forest, and its potential effects on two of Montana’s endangered species. Agreeing with the plaintiffs, the court held the mining project would jeopardize the continued existence of both the bull trout and grizzly bear species, and that approval of the Project violated the ESA. The court held the U.S. Forest Service’s approval of the mining project arbitrary and capricious, leaving the wilderness area untrammeled.
