CRC News Releases

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - October 15, 2003

Community Rights Counsel and Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington today filed the attached petition for review of the order by Tenth Circuit Chief Judge Deanell Tacha dismissing our complaint against Judge Clarence Brimmer in the Roadless Rule case.

We argue that the Chief Judge was wrong in concluding that we were inappropriately challenging Judge Brimmer’s “decision” to preside over the Roadless Rule case, because 1) there is no evidence that Judge Brimmer ever even considered whether or not to recuse himself, and 2) he hid from the parties the basis for seeking his recusal.

Our petition will be considered by the full Judicial Council of the Tenth Circuit.

Please call Doug Kendall at 202-296-6889 x.3 or Melanie Sloan at 202-223-0133 if you would like any more details about this action.
