Suit filed over Preble's jumping mouse

June 24, 2009 | By DAMIEN SCHIFF

CBD filed suit yesterday in federal district court in Denver challenging the Service's decision to delist the mouse in Wyoming.  The mouse has been controversial for some time, with many people contending that it is genetically indistinct from other more populous mice.  In many respects, the debate over whether to protect the mouse has become an epitome of ESA controversy.
