On August 26, 2014, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals decided the case of Sierra Club, et. al. v. Jewel, a case involving the National Register of Historic Places (Register), which is administered by the Department of the Interior. The Court of Appeals held, over the dissent of Senior Circuit Judge Sentelle, that the plaintiffs, a coalition of environmental groups and historic preservation organizations, have standing to challenge the decision of the Keeper of the Register that the "Blair Mountain Battlefield", the scene of a historic and violent encounter between coal miners and coal companies in the 1920's, and located in Logan County West Virginia, should not be included in the Register because the initial listing process was defective.
