Judge Bradbury issued a 16 page decision in our favor late Tuesday, holding that the Idaho Transportation Department violated its own rules in approving four mega-shipments by ConocoPhillips up Highway 12 along the Clearwater and Lochsa rivers.
This is a sweeping ruling for our clients and confirms ITD failed to consider public safety and convenience in bowing to Big Oil’s desire to turn Idaho Highway 12 into a “high and wide” corridor.
Thank you to Borg Hendrickson, Lin Laughy, Peter Grubb and to everyone that came to court and made contributions to help protect the Lochsa from the threat of Big Oil! Together we are making a difference!
