Supreme Court Denies Cert in Aransas Project v. Shaw


The U.S. Supreme Court will not hear an appeal of the Fifth Circuit’s decision which reversed the lower court’s ruling. The Fifth Circuit found that the State of Texas had violated the Endangered Species Act in its administration of the state water permitting program which allegedly denied adequate amounts of fresh water at the Aransas, Texas Whooping Crane preserve. The case is Aransas Project v. Shaw.
