Note by Matthew D. Ross
In this Note, Matthew D. Ross examines the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit's decision in Atchafalaya Basinkeeper v. United States Army Corps of Engineers, 894 F.3d 692 (5th Cir. 2018). In this litigation over the construction of the Bayou Bridge Pipeline, the Fifth Circuit vacated the district court's preliminary injunction, finding that the Corps had adequately justified the authorization of out-of-kind mitigation measures and sufficiently considered the cumulative impacts of the proposed pipeline project.
