Description: Challenge to coal lease in New Mexico.
In re WildEarth Guardians
Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 10/29/2013 Order Download Bureau of Land Management's request for remand granted. The Interior Department’s Board of Land Appeals denied a request for a stay of a previous decision allowing the sale of 2,695 acres adjoining coal mines in northwestern New Mexico, effectively allowing the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to complete the sales. In August 2010, the BLM agreed to offer the land at issue for leasing purposes. WildEarth Guardians, along with several other environmental groups, appealed the decision, alleging that BLM failed to adequately analyze and assess the climate change impacts of the leases under NEPA.
