Judge orders USBLM chief to step down after finding his long-term "acting" appointment illegal

A federal judge in Montana has ordered William Perry Pendley, the acting director of the Bureau of Land Management, to leave the position after finding that he had served unlawfully as acting director for 424 days.


Mr. Pendley, who had held the job since he was “temporarily” appointed in July 2019, was also prohibited from using any authority to make decisions about federal lands. President Trump nominated Mr. Pendley to fill the position on a permanent basis in July 2020 but withdrew the nomination this month.
