Ninth Circuit Expands Intervention Rights in NEPA Lawsuits
By Dustin Till
January 26, 2011

Earlier this month, the Ninth Circuit abandoned the “federal defendant” rule, and opened the door for private parties, local and state governments, tribes, and environmental NGOs to intervene in NEPA litigation in nine Western states.The Wilderness Society v. United States, --F.3d--, 2011 WL 117672 (9th Cir. Jan. 14, 2011) (en banc). The decision could substantially alter the dynamics of NEPA litigation in the West, where challenges to energy and natural resource projects are common.
