ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit has ruled that the Interior Department did not violate a federal law in permitting a Royal Dutch Shell plc affiliate to explore oil in the Beaufort Sea. The ruling by a three-judge panel in Anchorage rejected a challenge to federal permits Shell received in Mineral Management Service (MMS) Lease Sale 202 in 2007. The appeals court ruling comes on the heels of a district court decision in favor of MMS in that matter.
