Off-road Vehicles Can Freely Roam BLM Lands

The Supremes have spoken once again. This time, it's against environmentalists. They sued the Bureau of Land Management over the BLM's failure to prevent off-road vehicles from damaging wilderness study areas.

Unfortunately, the environmentalists didn't sue when the BLM approved the wilderness study area, so they tried an end-run, and sued under the Administrative Procedures Act.

As you already know, the Supremes didn't buy it. In fact, they slammed the environmentalists in a short, 17-page opinion.

Now, you can feel free to drive all over creation. Subject, of course, to the rules and regs of wherever you are.
