Sierra Club v. Morton
Citation: 2 ELR 20469
No. No. 51464, (N.D. Cal., 05/25/1972) Motion to amend complaint granted
Plaintiff, Sierra Club, now moves to amend its complaint by adding allegations of injury to its aesthetic, conservational and recreational interests. These are precisely the kind of allegations that the Supreme Court noted were absent from the original complaint, Sierra Club v. Morton, 2 ELR 20192, and comprise curative amendments, apparently envisioned by the Supreme Court, with respect to the threshold procedural issue of standing. Plaintiff's motion for leave to amend is granted.
