Well that didn't take long. Just over two weeks after hearing oral arguments over a controversial Reno highway expansion, the Ninth Circuit has refused to halt the project. Community groups had opposed the controversial SouthEast Connector, seeking an emergency injunction to halt the project and arguing that it had been approved without sufficient environmental review.
The Ninth, it seems, didn't even have to think twice about it. The court quickly rejected the group's appeal, in a three paragraph opinion which found no indication that the lower court had abused its discretion when it allowed construction to go forward.
