Lawsuit accuses Montana wildlife commission of illegal meeting
From the Helena Independent Record in Montana:
The Montana Fish and Wildlife Commission has been accused by a wolf advocacy group of conducting an illegal meeting via email before the body considered controversial regulations on elk shoulder seasons and hunting and trapping wolves last year, according to an amended lawsuit.
In March, Wolves of the Rockies filed a lawsuit in Lewis and Clark County District Court seeking to compel Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks to release public documents including emails. The group argued the agency was taking an unreasonable amount of time to produce records related to several requests and did not communicate adequately when asked for status updates.
