Markhor III, the suit to compel the 12-month downlisting determination that is past due on the second petition to downlist the species, has been formally settled in Court. The 12-month determination will be made before the end of July. A claim for attorney fees on Markhor III has been agreed to and settled as well. These are the first such fees in any of the cases over the past three years. The small sum of $22,500 is going to the pro bono, part-time attorneys working in Conservation Force’s home office. Yours truly’s share is being held in trust to help fund Conservation Force’s first paid, full-time attorney.
We also want to thank Corey Knowlton for a timely and significant contribution he made recently when we had as many as three legal briefs of 50 to 70 pages to file in a single week of time.
We need support. Won’t you help?
