Center for Sustainable Economy v. Sally Jewell

<> Center for Sustainable Economy v. Sally Jewell - 3/6/15. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 12-1431. In a 2-1 decision, the Majority indicate, "We deny CSE's petition and conclude that: (1) CSE has associational standing to petition for review, (2) CSE's NEPA claims are unripe, (3) two of CSE's Program challenges are forfeited, and (4) CSE's remaining challenges to Interior's adoption of the 2012-2017 leasing schedule fail on their merits."
     The dissenting opinion states, "I dissent, not because I disagree with my colleagues' reasoning, nor because I would sustain the petition. Rather, I would dismiss the petition for lack of standing."
