The Partnership has alleged that the EPA illegally coordinated its efforts with anti-mine groups with the intention of blocking the project. The Partnership has sued the EPA and both parties are requesting a five month extension to the suit’s discovery period. Both sides say they want to pursue mediation. The EPA has argued that the lawsuit is meant to undermine its efforts to protect the Bristol Bay region. A status conference is scheduled for today.
