California Department of Fish and Wildlife shirks obligation to update species status on Courting Liberty
PLF Attorneys Wencong Fa and Anthony François discuss PLF’s suit against the California Department of Fish and Wildlife for failing to meet a five year status review of every species listed as either endangered or threatened under the California Endangered Species Act. Without the review property rights could remain in jeopardy for California citizens and species that are in need of more protections, could be going without.
We invite you to listen weekly and subscribe to PLF’s Courting Liberty podcast. The show features a weekly look at development in our high-profile cases, interviews with PLF attorneys and clients, in-depth analysis with policy experts, our “Ask a Lawyer” segment, and everything else PLF.
