Sovereign Iñupiat for a Living Arctic v. Bureau of Land Management

ELR Citation: 51 ELR 20022
Nos. 3:20-cv-00290-SLG and 3:20-cv-00308-SLG, (D. Alaska, 02/06/2021) (Gleason, J.)

A district court granted in part and denied in part environmental groups' motion for an injunction pending appeal of the court's prior ruling denying the groups' motions to enjoin a company from undertaking construction this winter on an oil and gas project in the National Petroleum Reserve-Alaska. The court found that at least one of the groups' members would likely be irreparably injured absent immediate injunctive relief, and therefore issued a brief and limited injunction.
