Judge rejects state of Utah lawsuit to nullify Biden's restoration of Grand Staircase & Bears Ears

Last summer, state and local officials, including Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes and Gov. Spencer Cox, filed a lawsuit seeking to shrink the recently restored monuments by more than 2 million acres.
