Reese River Basin Citizens Against Fracking, LLC v. Bureau of Land Management

ELR Citation: 44 ELR 20203
Nos. 3:14-cv-00338, (D. Nev., 09/08/2014) (Du, J.)

A district court denied an environmental group's motion to preliminarily enjoin BLM from issuing oil and gas leases in central and southwest Nevada due to allegedly defective environmental analyses. Although BLM has conducted a lease sale, it retains discretion to issue any leases resulting from that lease sale. The group therefore seeks to challenge an agency action that is not yet final, and so the court lacks subject matter jurisdiction to review BLM's action.
