Judge Says We Can Sue The Wildlife Commission
On November 3, 2016, District Lynne Simons issued a decision which affirmed our right to sue the Nevada Board of Wildlife Commissioners over trapping excesses. This is a win for wildlife. It confirms that ordinary citizens who simply enjoy wildlife for its intrinsic values (without killing anything) have a right to challenge management decisions made by those in charge. There is no need to “pay to play” with respect to these issues. The State will have to decide whether to appeal this decision. Otherwise, it’s on to a settlement or a trial.
