Markle Interest, L.L.C. V. U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Peter B. Taylor 2018 Alexander Blewett III School of Law at the University of Montana

Markle Interest, L.L.C. V. U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service, Peter B. Taylor

Public Land and Resources Law Review

This action is an appeal of a grant of summary judgment to the United States Fish and Wildlife Service on the designation of critical-habitat for the dusky gopher frog under the ESA. Landowner appellants originally sought declaratory and injunctive relief against the Service, the Department of Interior, and agency officials challenging the designation of their private property as critical-habitat for the dusky gopher frog. The court’s holdings recognize loss of property value as a “particularized injury” for standing under the ESA in addition to addressing the landowners’ three principal arguments: 1) the critical habitat designation violated the ESA and ...

The Ethics Of Environmental Litigation, Jenna Marie DiBenedetto 2018 Fordham University

The Ethics Of Environmental Litigation, Jenna Marie Dibenedetto

Student Theses 2015-Present

Abstract

We are raised from the early days of our youth to distinguish right from wrong, evil from good. Though there are many careers that have easily distinguishable ethics from their day of creation, others require spend their entire professional careers floating in a grey area. Being a lawyer can leave you in limbo very often. The ethical battle between prosecuting people whose actions go against everything you believe in and defending someone who actions you struggle to rationalize, looking for a “nail in the coffin” or finding a way to pry it open can play a large role in ...

The Right To Flourish, Regenerate, And Evolve: Towards Juridical Personhood For An Ecosystem, Nicholas Bilof

Golden Gate University Environmental Law Journal

This article will examine two at-risk American rivers through a comparison of the different legal approaches brought by the citizens and conservation groups fighting to protect them. Through analysis of the two lawsuits, this article will highlight the flaws of the traditional approach, and introduce a novel proposal for a shift in the lens under which nature is considered in American jurisprudence.

Part I will survey the Suwannee River and a citizen suit against a poultry-packing plant accused of illegally fouling its waters through repeated violations of an EPA-issued permit governing wastewater discharges. This suit represents the congressionally-created traditional avenue ...

Powering Mary Jane: Marijuana And Electric Public Utilities, Ryan Dadgari 2018 Golden Gate University School of Law

Powering Mary Jane: Marijuana And Electric Public Utilities, Ryan Dadgari

Golden Gate University Environmental Law Journal

The discourse surrounding legalizing marijuana use and cultivation is full of political, legal, and economic voices. While some discussions address the high electricity consumption of marijuana grow operations and their effects on the energy grid, few—if any—discuss whether or not public utilities could be held federally liable for supplying power to marijuana grows and incentivizing growers to use more energy efficient methods. Just as banks, doctors and lawyers could be at risk for providing their services to this emerging industry, so too could public utilities. In some cases, utilities that refuse to provide service to state-legal marijuana grow ...


A Battle Over Oysters: Drakes Bay Oyster Co. V. Jewell And Its Aftermath, Elena Idell 2018 Golden Gate University School of Law

Golden Gate University Environmental Law Journal

This comment summarizes the saga of Drakes Bay Oyster Company (DBOC), located in Point Reyes National Seashore (Seashore) in Marin County, California, just north of San Francisco. Owned and operated by the Lunny family, DBOC battled the National Park Service (NPS) in an attempt to compel the NPS to renew its special use permit (SUP). The SUP allowed DBOC to operate within Point Reyes National Seashore. This conflict pitted environmentalists against each other. Supporters of local, sustainable agriculture were on one side of the environmental debate. Traditional environmentalists, representing the other side, advocated for returning uninhabited areas to an untouched ...

Cherishing The Coast: California Goes Long, Ariel Rubissow Okamoto, Nate Seltenrich, Lisa Owens Viani, Jonathon Gurish

Golden Gate University Environmental Law Journal

This article focuses on the California Coastal Conservancy. It explores the Conservancy’s uniquely proactive approach to coastal zone management through both oral history (collected via telephone interviews) and literature research. In general, being proactive has involved the Conservancy in activities such as identifying coastal areas or wildlife habitats in need of protection; developing plans and priorities for acquisition or restoration; assembling and supporting local stewards and partners; leading and shepherding collaborative projects to fruition; and often providing significant funding.
