Sierra Club v. Sally Jewell

Sierra Club v. Sally Jewell - 8/26/14. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 12-5383. Environmental and historical preservation organizations were seeking to protect the historically significant West Virginia Blair Mountain Battlefield site from surface coal mining. The district court granted summary judgment against them, holding that they lack standing because they fail to demonstrate the requisite injury, causation, or redressability. The Panel disagreed and concluded that they have standing to challenge the "Keeper of the Register" decision.
