American Independence Mines v. U.S. Department of Agriculture – Environment
(Originated in Idaho)
U.S. Supreme Court – cert petition

Plaintiffs challenged USDA’s NEPA assessment on a motor vehicle rule issued by the agency. The district court dismissed the case for lack of prudential standing under Ninth Circuit precedent holding that “purely” economic interests are legally insufficient to confer prudential standing in the NEPA. Petitioners argue that excluding those seeking to protect economic interests from challenging an agency’s compliance with the NEPA sharply conflicts with decisions of the Supreme Court and the Eighth Circuit on an important, recurring issue of federal law.
