Environmental Groups Just Sued the Trump Administration Over Its Endangered Species Act Rollback

The lawsuit, was filed Wednesday by Earthjustice on behalf of seven groups including the Sierra Club, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Defenders of Wildlife alleges the administration failed to analyze and disclose the rules’ impact as required by law, changed the rules without proper public comment, and violated the language and purpose of the Endangered Species Act.
