On April 18, the Center for Biological Diversity and the Sierra Club filed a suit against Interior Secretary Sally Jewell and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) over hydraulic fracturing leases in California. The groups assert that Secretary Jewell and BLM did not fully consider the environmental risks of fracking when they approved the auction of 17,000 acres in Fresno, Monterey, and San Benito counties for oil and gas development; the groups filed a similar suit a few months ago in an attempt to cancel the leases.
