Governor Asks Judge to Continue Wolf Suit in Wyoming

CHEYENNE, Wyo. –  The Wyoming Attorney General has filed a motion to continue the lawsuit over wolf management in Wyoming. Last week the plaintiffs filed a “Notice of Voluntary Dismissal.” This, if not challenged, would leave only the Court in Washington, DC to hear the challenge over Wyoming’s wolves.

“This is a matter of considerable local interest and I believe that the suit should be heard here, closest to the Wyoming citizens,” Governor Mead said. “Sometimes the party that files a lawsuit must finish what they started. This is one of those times.”

The State of Wyoming is asking the Court to set aside the “Notice of Voluntary Dismissal” and give all of the parties in the suit a chance to respond.
