NM Wilderness Attorney Judy Calman will give an overview of the McKittrick policy and lawsuit regarding NM Gray Wolves and the NM Game Commision/Ladder Ranch permit situation, Federal land use and agency planning, Santa Fe Geothermal Issues, and the controversial situation regarding Oil and Gas Development on federal lands, how it works, and what the Pit rule is.
Introduction by Alicia Johnson from the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance
Moderator: Attorney Denise Fort.
Program Host: Bill Dupuy, the former News Director for KSFR Radio Station.
Judy Calman moved to New Mexico towards the end of 2001, inspired by a life-long fascination with the West. After completing degrees in Biology and Philosophy and working on several political campaigns, she realized her true passion to be environmental policy. She completed her law degree at the University of New Mexico, as well as a Masters in Environmental Law and Policy at the Vermont Law School. She has worked at the City of Albuquerque as an Energy and Wildlife Consultant, at WildEarth Guardians on endangered species litigation, and at an environmental law firm in Atlanta opposing new coal plants.
For the past three years, she has been helping New Mexico Wilderness Alliance ensure that federal agencies are complying with environmental laws, working to propose more federal lands for Administrative protections, and appealing agency actions which are particularly damaging to public lands. She represented NMWA in the statewide pit rule hearings which occurred last year, is currently appealing several BLM oil and gas decisions to the Interior Board of Land Appeals, and has filed suit against the Department of Justice for a damaging policy regarding Mexican wolves.
