This book takes a close look at the litigation of NEPA cases, including jurisdiction and related issues, standard and scope of judicial review, and the specific concerns of litigators. Written by experienced practitioners and scholars, this comprehensive guide identifies key NEPA issues and offers solutions to the challenges faced in practice. This edition now features a chapter on climate change and its relationship to the NEPA process; updated chapters highlight recent cases and provide information on new policies, such as monitoring and mitigation, from the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ), the body created by the statute to provide guidance and oversight to other federal agencies on NEPA compliance.
