Au Sable Anglers Rejoice at Ruling Against Drilling

A Michigan judge granted summary judgement for the Sierra Club and Anglers of the AuSable in their lawsuit against the U.S. Forest Service and the U.S. Bureau of Land Management to stop drilling in old-growth forest by Savoy Energy LP. “Though the Forest Service determined in 2005 the project would have no significant impact, [Judge] Binder in his report cited myriad concerns, including changes to the area’s natural beauty and doubling of the noise level in the area. He said the federal government in its assessments only paid ‘lip service’ to vital issues.” Paul Egan in the Detroit News.
