Discusses the Supreme Court case, Kleppe v. Sierra Club. In Kleppe, several environmental groups brought suit in federal district court against the Department of Interior (the Department) and other federal agencies to force the Department to prepare a comprehensive regional environmental impact statement (EIS) on the entire region. Eventually the Supreme Court dissolved the injunction and reversed the court of appeals’ decision. The Supreme Court held that the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA) did not require a comprehensive regional EIS to be prepared in the absence of a proposed federal regional plan in the Northern Great Plains Region.
