ANIMAL LEGAL DEFENSE FUND v. DAVID BERNHARDT, et al.
A federal judge in California has dismissed (here and attached) two lawsuits filed by environmental and animal protection groups challenging the federal government’s recent rollbacks of the Endangered Species Act, saying that the groups failed to establish standing. A similar lawsuit brought by a coalition of states, however, survived.
