Supreme Court declines to hear fishing industry challenge to Northeast Canyons & Seamounts NMon

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in a statement issued Monday that “despite concerns” about the designation of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument, the lawsuit does not “satisfy our usual criteria” for reviewing cases.
