Sheppard Mullin is representing Trout Unlimited pro bono in a suit challenging the EPA’s August 20, 2019, decision to rescind the Bristol Bay Proposed Determination that protected the vibrant fishing economy in Alaska’s Bristol Bay region from Canada-based Pebble Limited Partnership’s proposed massive open-pit copper and gold mine. Bloomberg Environment quoted Trout Unlimited CEO Chris Wood:  “Sacrificing a place such as Bristol Bay for some gold is a short-sighted fool’s errand. We are not a litigious organization, but we and millions of other sportsmen and women will not allow greed to compromise the most important salmon fishery on the planet.”
