Backers of Colorado Roadless Rule running out of legal options, enviro attorney says

Backers of Colorado Roadless Rule running out of legal options, enviro attorney says

An environmental attorney who argued in favor of the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule before a federal appeals court says there are only two legal options left for opponents of the Clinton-era rule and backers of state-specific rules like Colorado’s – and both are long-shots. Earthjustice attorney Jim Angell told the Colorado Independent that last week’s decision by the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals rejecting a 2008 Wyoming federal court decision and backing the Clinton rule undermines Colorado’s contention that it needs its own rule because of legal uncertainty. “Really, for all intents and purposes this is the certainty we’re going to get in this region, and what’s really going on is the state wants its rule and is using alleged legal uncertainty as an excuse for its continued support for it,” Angell said.
