Friday, February 28th a hearing was held in the 9th Circuit Court in San Francisco to hear the cross-motions for summary judgment regarding the ISDRA. The following summary was provided to the aSa from our Attorney Dave Hubbard:
The hearing on the cross-motions for summary judgment went well. Although Judge Illston only gave the parties about 50 minutes total at oral argument, it was clear that she had read the briefs carefully and understood the positions taken by both sides. The judge noted that this case has been on her docket for 13 years and that she is anxious to resolve it. Kevin McCardle - the Dept. of Justice lawyer representing the BLM and USFWS - handled most of the argument for the defense side, which is appropriate. Paul Turcke and I added a few comments, but the court was most interested in hearing from Center for Biological Diversity and Bureau of Land Management. The judge did not indicate when she plans to issue her decision, but I sensed that it would be within the next 45 to 60 days.
We will keep everyone updated as soon as we receive any additional information. In the meantime, we continue to wait.
