Case Summary Citation

__ F.Supp.2d __, 2013 WL 6083927, 2013 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 164047 (D.D.C. 2013)


The United States District Court for the District of Columbia found that the BLM and Forest Service did not act arbitrarily and capriciously when they maintained and extended a boundary fence and decided not to expand a wild horse and burro range. The court also held the BLM used reasoned decision making when it determined a target horse and burro population in a herd management plan. Additionally, a National Environmental Policy Act claim was defeated under the “capable of repetition yet evading review” exception to the mootness doctrine.
