We face off against the BLM in Court TOMORROW (June 9, 2022). Here’s how to listen.
Tomorrow at 10am Pacific Time (1pm Eastern), Judge Du of United States District Court District of Nevada will hold brief hearing for the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and Reno Sparks Indian Colony to present arguments related to how BLM lawyers handled the administrative record production for the lawsuit against Lithium Nevada Corporation and the BLM.
BACKGROUND INFORMATION: On April 4th, the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony filed a motion alleging that the BLM illegally excluded 8,000 documents related to the lawsuit against the Thacker Pass lithium mine. The planned mine, which was permitted under a Trump Administration “fast track,” is facing several lawsuits, public protests, and resistance from environmentalists, tribes, and local ranchers.
The BLM is poised to hand over thousands of acres of public land to a private company to destroy, all while lying to the public—or at least, acting with gross incompetence. Is this what we want?
