Wyoming v. Department of the Interior

ELR Citation: 36 ELR 20067
Nos. Nos. 05-8026 et al., (10th Cir., 04/03/2006)

The court upholds the dismissal of Wyoming's constitutional, Adminstrative Procedure Act (APA), Endangered Species Act, and National Environmental Policy Act claims against the U.S. Department of the Interior for failing to initiate delisting of the gray wolf as an endangered species and for its alleged failure to manage and control wolf population in the state. Wyoming failed to identify a final agency action necessary to satisfy the statutory standing requirements of the APA. Consequently, the court expressed no opinion on the state's remaining claims.
