Re: Bill Walker Compass piece (Nov. 2):
What gives litigants to foolish lawsuits the right to hijack the term “public interest?” The state Constitution mandates management of resources to the maximum benefit of the public. Without low-impact biological and mineral field studies it cannot be determined how best to manage resources.
Hammond, Fischer and others knew the consequences and need to be accountable. Relief would only encourage more future irresponsible litigation.
