Five Tribes Sue Trump for Cutting Bears Ears by 85 Percent

5th December 2017

Read it.

Bears Ears was established under the Antiquities Act in Dec. 2016 by former President Barack Obama.

“When we look at the underlying act, it does give the president broad discretion [to designate monuments],” Ute Indian Tribe attorney Jeffrey Rasmussen said on a press call Tuesday. “The legal issue that we are going to be getting to is can the president or can a new president go back and redo that use of discretion.”

I rather think he does. I’m curious as to the basis of their suit, aside from the fact that they didn’t like it.
