The article reports that the U.S. Department of the Interior has recently said that the State of Louisiana has agreed to dismiss its lawsuit against the U.S. concerning oil and natural gas leasing in federal waters off the coast of the state (OCS). Louisiana had filed suit challenging Interior's Western Gulf of Mexico Lease Sale 200, alleging that the sale was wrongly conducted without a thorough environmental analysis. Under the agreement, Louisiana forgoes any challenge to Interior issuing leases to petroleum companies for the OCS parcels they got rights to develop under Lease Sale 200.
