Coalition of outdoor retailers, enviros sue Trump over mine approval near Boundary Waters Wilderness

(Reuters) - Minnesota outdoor recreation firms have sued the federal government over its decision to reinstate leases for a mine next to a state wilderness as part of the Trump administration’s drive to allow mining in some of the country’s wildest areas.


The Interior Department’s May 2 decision was unlawful and posed an immediate threat to the environment and the areas’ outdoor-recreation economy, according to the lawsuit filed in federal court in the District of Columbia on Thursday.
