Judge Friedman “Rules in Favor of BLM” in Calico Lawsuit, May 24, 2010

Reaction of BLM Director to Judge Friedman’s Ruling

Yesterday (Monday, May 24, 2010), U.S. District Court Judge Paul L. Friedman ruled in favor of the Bureau of Land Management in a lawsuit that challenged the BLM’s recent gather of wild horses from the Calico Mountains Complex in Nevada. We are satisfied with Judge Friedman’s ruling and believe that the decision stands on its own,” said BLM Director Bob Abbey. “The BLM will continue to implement land-use planning decisions based on the best science available. We will continue to follow the law and seek public input as we chart a new course for the Wild Horse and Burro Program, one that benefits the animals, the land, and the American taxpayer.

    just one comment before i read the case..Mr Abbey..it aint over til its over..This is just the beginning..not the end..Facts being what they are-some of you maybe watching from the sidelines…

  2. The real issue is obvious in the BLM’s statement, “The BLM will continue to implement land-use planning decisions based on the best science available.” LAND MANAGEMENT is conflicted with Mustang Management thus that agency must be stripped of wildlife management. A new department must be organized that specifically protects wildlife, especially Mustangs, as American icons. The BLM just divided agencies in dealing with their misdealings with the Gulf oil spill and it must be done with land vs. wildlife.

      I;m with yuo Frank, this is definitely a conflict of interest and will never be able to achieve any semblance of balance in their decisions.

  3. It’s all about land and the mustangs and burros are the skapegoats. The BLM is managing the land for special interests but totally mismanaging the mustangs. This is not management, this is cruelty, plain and simple. We must protect these magnificent creatures who represent so much of what America stands for. Wherever Ken Salazar goes, death and destruction are sure to follow. We need to impeach him.. NOW.

    JUDGES CAN AND ARE IMPEACHED. JUST HEARD ABOUT ONE IN CALIFORNIA THAT WAS IMPEACHED.

    I SAY LET’S PRESS ON–EITHER ANOTHER LAWSUIT– APPEAL THIS DECISION– WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GO FORWARD. WWII LOOKED PRETTY BAD FOR A WHILE, BUT ULTIMATELY, EVIL WAS DEFEATED BY GOOD. WE OWE IT TO ALL OF THE WARRIORS THAT HAVE BEEN OUT THERE IN THE TRENCHES SO LONG. LET’S GET STARTED.

    Washington » Bureau of Land Management nominee Bob Abbey vowed Thursday before a Senate panel that if confirmed he will be a “hands-on” director and work to find common ground among divergent interests.

    Abbey, appearing before the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee, said there are always differences of opinion on how to treat public lands, but it’s time the BLM moves to alleviate strained relationships.

    “Managing the national system of public lands for multiple uses is not easy by any means,” Abbey said. But, “acknowledging that many stakeholders have valid reasons for some of their differences, I know from working in the field that we actually have much in common.”

      Guess BOB wasn’t up to the job..

        I think he was referencing his “boot on the kneck of the wild horses”..never let it be said that I missed an opportunity!

    Looks like Salazar is sending out the mascott and the janitor too to the oil spill..How about sending someone who has a history of fixing things of this nature..Whats BOB going to do..stuff wild horses in the hole???? Kill 2 horses with 1 oil well?

    SEE WHO ENDS UP HOLDING THE BAG. THEY’RE ALL BLAMING EACH OTHER. THEY ALL NEED TO GO–CLEAN SWEEP.

    AMERICAN HERDS HAS SOME OF THE BEST,IN-DEPTH WORK ON THE WEB. CINDY HAS CRUNCHED THE NUMBERS AND DONE THE BRAIN WORK.

    • sandra longley said

      Yes, and particularly the part about the BLM trying to offer Rubypipe line a buy in to ownership of Soldiers Meadows-the best grazing and water source on the calico complex..they couldn’t hardly wait for the ink to dry..I hope WWP takes them to the cleaners on this one..No one better try to defend the BLM on this…Now that the administration and public eye is on the BLM corruption in the mineral dept..Lets start pointing out the same kinds of prostitution being done to the public lands..lets not let this opportunity slip by us.

  12. LOUIE COCROFT said

    WE NEED CINDY IN THE DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR. SHE SHOULD BE RUNNING THE WILD HORSE AND BURRO PROGRAM.
