Judge merges lawsuits on Trump’s NMon cuts into 1 each for Bears Ears, Grand Staircase–Escalante

Washington • A federal judge has consolidated into two cases the five lawsuits filed against President Donald Trump’s order to shrink two Utah national monuments. One case now will deal with the former Bears Ears monument and the other, the Grand Staircase-Escalante.

The five suits, filed days after Trump trimmed the monuments by 2 million acres, all essentially argue that the president doesn’t have the authority to change the boundaries of a monument under the 1906 Antiquities Act.
