Anglers Conservation Network v. Pritzker

<> Anglers Conservation Network v. Pritzker - 1/5/16. In the U.S Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 14-5304. Plaintiffs brought this lawsuit claiming that federal agencies unlawfully neglected to manage stocks of river herring (alewives and blueback herring), and shad (American shad and their smaller relatives, hickory shad) in the Atlantic Ocean from New York to North Carolina.
     The district court granted the government's motion to dismiss the complaint on the ground that there was no basis for judicial review of the Fishery Council's decision. The Panel ruled, "In short, plaintiffs' claims are not subject to judicial review under the Magnuson-Stevens Act or the Administrative Procedure Act. The judgment of the district court is therefore affirmed."
