Judge rejects Trump's attempt to halt lawsuit challenging his 2017 NMon cuts

A federal judge has sided with environmental and tribal groups, for now, in a legal skirmish over the Trump administration’s decision to shrink two national monuments in Utah.

The U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on Sept. 30 rejected the government’s bid to sink the litigation—a set of consolidated challenges from The Wilderness Society, Grand Staircase Escalante Partners, the Hopi Tribe, and other groups that filed suit after President Donald Trump in 2017 slashed the acreage of Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments.
