Defenders of Wildlife has reportedly sued the Minerals Management Service (MMS) over an alleged failure to apply its own regulations on oil and gas drilling in the Gulf of Mexico and continued lax oversight of drilling operations. Defenders of Wildlife v. MMS, No. 10-254 (S.D. Ala. 05/17/10). According to the complaint, MMS has violated NEPA and the Administrative Procedures Act. Plaintiff asks the court to (i) vacate MMS-manual provisions affording categorical exclusions for exploration and the development of production plans, (ii) enjoin the MMS from authorizing further categorical exclusions from NEPA review, (iii) vacate and remand the EIS for all Gulf of Mexico offshore lease sales from 2007-2012, and (iv) enjoin all future lease sales until supplemental statements are prepared.
