Environmental Lawsuits Rake in Billions for Lawyers By Jake Putnam Cheyenne--During harsh economic times, rancher Karen Budd-Falen reached the breaking point on a day last fall. Falen had read about a huge court settlement the Federal Government paid out to a non-profit environmental group and after talking to the ranchers in the Western Legacy Alliance, it set her off. Falen channeled the frustration into a quest; she wanted to know how much money the Federal Government had paid out in lawsuit legal fees over the past decade and what she found is astounding. In just six years non- profit environmental groups filed more than 15-hundred lawsuits and in turn the Federal Government paid out more than $4.7 billion in taxpayer dollars in settlements and legal fees in cases against the U.S. government. Between 2000 and 2009, Idaho’s Western Watersheds Project out of Hailey filed at least 91 lawsuits in federal district court with 31 appeals in federal appellate court according to Falen, who not only is a rancher but a former Department of Interior law clerk. She and husband Frank represent cattlemen in range issues throughout the west. Falen often wondered how tiny non-profit organizations like Western Watersheds could afford an attorney like the famed Laird Lucas of Boise who is known as one of the best natural resource attorneys in the country. “We tried to track the fees paid to environmental groups in certain federal courts. These guys are charging between $350 and $450 an hour in legal fees.” Falen says the Federal government is picking up the tab and adds: “In Federal District Court in Boise, over the last ten years, WWP received a total of $999,190 in tax dollars for ‘reimbursement’ for attorney fees and costs.” “We’ve had a lot of litigation with WWP,” said Assistant U.S. Attorney Mark Haws of Boise. “We’ve have a lot of cases with them and they have prevailed on cases and been awarded Equal Access to Justice Attorney fees. I don’t have a total, but that amount wouldn’t surprise me.” “It’s atrocious, as a private operator I can’t gather that kind of money to fight anything like that,” said rancher Ted Higley of Malta, Idaho. “If they’re going to fight personal causes it should be with their personal money, not government money.” Falen’s research shows that of the cases filed by Western Watersheds in Idaho’s Federal Court, 19 went before Judge Lynn Winmill; eight resulted in decisions on merit with WWP prevailing with total attorney fees awarded to the tune of $746,184; six of the cases were settled by the feds paying of $118,000. WWP lost six cases but still managed a payday in two cases, but the payment amount is confidential. Falen’s findings show a pattern: there’s a payday in court, win or lose or draw. “I’m not going to point fingers at WWP but there are organizations out there that are just sitting there scrutinizing, watching every decision an agency makes waiting for that ‘low hanging fruit’ to jump on-- just to get fees,” said U.S. Attorney Mark Haws. “Nonprofit, tax exempt groups are making billions of dollars in funding,” said Falen. She says the majority of this legal fee money is not going into programs to protect people, jobs, wildlife, or endangered species but to fund more lawsuits from ‘non-profit environmental groups. Farmers and Ranchers that struggle to make a living off the land are forced to spend money out of their pocket to defend themselves; that’s what happened to ranchers Tim Lowry and Paul Nettleton of Owyhee County. The ranchers successfully defended a decade-long fight for water rights on their land against the BLM. The Idaho Supreme Court ruled on their side in a precedent setting case but the U.S. Supreme Court denied them attorney fees under EAJA from the government because the decision came in state court. That left the ranchers with a $1.5 million legal bill from a case in which the Federal Government dragged them into court. “There’s a lot of a things wrong with this picture,” said Falen. “The federal government is spending billions in taxpayer dollars without any accounting of where the money is going or to whom it is going. There is no oversight in spending this money, especially the money that’s coming out of agency budgets that should be funding programs to protect public lands, national forests, ranchers, recreationists, wildlife and other land uses,” said Falen. Falen’s research shows that between 2000 and 2009, Forest Guardians (NKA as WildEarth Guardians) filed 180 lawsuits in federal district courts with at least 61appeals in the federal appellate courts during the same time frame the Center for Biological Diversity filed at least 409 lawsuits in the federal district courts with at least 165 appeals in the federal appellate courts. In addition she found over the past 15 years that the Wilderness Society filed 149 federal court lawsuits, the Idaho Conservation League filed 69 lawsuits, the Oregon Natural Desert Association filed 58 lawsuits, th
February 06, 2011 Clarice's Pieces: The Incredible Lightness of Obama By Clarice Feldman This week saw a showdown between the man whose most significant achievement before 2008 was that he very nearly got the asbestos removed from the Altgeld Gardens tenements in Chicago and the third-longest-ruling head of Egypt since the Pharaoh Ramses, whose reign lasted 67 years. The Egyptian, an 82-year-old with terminal cancer, easily bested the community organizer, the man elected by people who quite clearly confused the last presidential election with an American idol contest. While many who elected the American president probably do not yet realize it, it is lucky for them that he lost the showdown, for had he not, the results would have created worldwide havoc and devastation. The week marked the continuation of a popular and judicial revolt against the overweening and extralegal domestic power-grab by the Obama administration and ended with the president once again backing the wrong horse and trumpeting to the world how much more he favors our enemies than our allies. A little like Manuel Zelaya in Honduras before him, Hosni Mubarak outsmarted and outplayed the community organizer. Meanwhile, the White House signaled that it intended to ignore the clear language of Judge Vinson's opinion and proceed with implementing ObamaCare. As of Friday afternoon, the government had not filed a motion to stay Judge Vinson's order nor an appeal of his order, and at least two states have telegraphed that they think that ObamaCare is dead in its tracks. Both Wisconsin's and Florida's attorneys general have instructed state agencies to cease work to implement it. In the Senate, Mitch McConnell, who has promised to tack a repeal amendment on every piece of legislation, began implementing his promise and attached such an amendment to the first bill of the session, one to authorize funding of the FAA. Every Republican voted for the amendment; every Democrat voted against it. As anger against this act and the administration continues to soar, it will be interesting to see how many vulnerable senators will continue to stake their future careers on a monumentally unpopular act that cost so many of their congressional colleagues their seats last November. The Senate did vote to repeal the preposterous 1099 reporting rule, which would have required businesses to file 1099 forms for all purchases of goods or services over $600, a provision that would have buried the Capitol in a sea of meaningless paperwork and encouraged the creation of an Italian-style off-the-books economy. The administration is clearly hoping to delay any appeal to the Supreme Court on the law so that implementation will be so far underway that it can argue that undoing the legislation would have a disastrous impact on the economy and national health care. Virginia's attorney general had another idea. He's asking the Supreme Court to take the case without waiting for the Appellate Court to hear and decide it. One assumes that if the Court agrees to do this, all the related cases will be heard at the same time. But congressional and judicial efforts are not all there is on tap to stop this law from going into effect and changing forever American's relationship to the federal government. In Idaho, one legislator is proposing a nullification bill, and other states are voting to opt out of the act. For every (outrageously overreaching) action, there's an equal and opposite reaction. In Obama's mind, cramming this act through Congress might have been his crowning achievement. In mine, it will be the epitaph of his administration, if not his party as well. But the presumptive contempt of Judge Vinson's order is not the only sign that the administration sees itself as above the law. In Louisiana, Judge Feldman looked at Secretary Salazar's refusal to follow his ruling on resumption of drilling permits in the Gulf and found the Obama administration in contempt. Having his most prized achievement hit the shoals and his obvious attempt to choke off all genuine domestic energy production briefly stymied, Obama might have written the week off, but events overseas caught him off-guard. Just weeks after lavishly entertaining the Tiananmen Square butcher at the White House, Obama decided to meddle in Egyptian affairs, in which a street uprising briefly caught the government unawares. The demonstrations triggered in Obama the sophomoric belief that he was watching a replay of The Battle of Algiers. While the slow-to-respond Mubarak soon caught on to the state of play in Cairo and deftly maneuvered his pieces on the board, applying and releasing pressure as needed to keep the sparks from becoming a conflagration and the people from turning their enmity on the military, he dragged the confusion on to the point where the people now want food and stability over chaos, looting, murder, shari,a and the unrealistic idea of democracy.
