Snowmobile Ruling Stands

Washington, DC – An appellate court in Washington, D.C. Tuesday refused to suspend a ruling that curtailed snowmobiling in Yellowstone National Park. The appeals court is considering several appeals and says the state of Wyoming, and others who had asked for a stay, did not satisified the stringent standards needed for a court to grant it. The appeals themselves now go forward, but could take months to decide. In December, US District Judge Emmet Sullivan ordered the Park Service to drop a plan to allow snowmobiling to continue in Yellowstone and Grand Teton.
