Voyageur Outbound School v. United States
Robins Kaplan serves as lead appellate counsel to Friends of the Boundary Waters Wilderness in an Administrative Procedure Act challenge to the United States Bureau of Land Management’s reinstatement of two copper-nickel mining leases along the edge of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness.
The revival of these mining leases will allow exploration and development of a sulfide-ore copper-nickel mine that threatens to discharge sulfuric acid and other harmful substances and contaminate the Boundary Waters’ lakes and rivers.
