More Information on Ninth Circuit Decision Rejecting Challenge to Vernal Pool Critical Habitat

We previously announced the Ninth Circuit's decision in Home Builders Association of Northern California v. United States Fish and Wildlife Service upholding the designation of 858,000 acres of land in California as critical habitat for fifteen vernal pool species under the Endangered Species Act.  For more information regarding this decision, see this article published in the Courthouse News Service earlier this week.

Nossaman’s Endangered Species Law & Policy blog focuses on news, events, and policies affecting endangered species issues in California and throughout the United States. Topics include listing and critical habitat decisions, conservation and recovery planning, inter-agency consultation, and related developments in law, policy, and science. We also inform readers about regulatory and legislative developments, as well as key court decisions.
