Court of Appeals Ruling in HSUS v. Hodel, 1988

This is an opinion from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, issued on February 16, 1988.

HSUS and its then-associate general counsel Roger Kindler had previously sued the Secretary of the Interior over the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s decision to expand hunting in wildlife refuges. A lower court had determined that HSUS did not have standing to bring the complaint.

The Court of Appeals reversed in part and affirmed in part the lower court’s ruling.
