Court litigation challenging the final CHNSRA ORV management plan to the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. On August 6, 2012 as directed by Judge Sullivan, CHAPA filed an objection to such transfer. On August 10, 2012, the U.S. attorney filed the defendant's response to the CHAPA objection. On August 13, 2012, the attorneys for the intervenors filed the intervenors' response to the CHAPA objection. These documents may be viewed by clicking on the enclosed links.
