Rayco, LLC v. Bernhardt

Fighting to Save the Family Legacy

Emerson and Fay Ray were a young couple, recently married, when they first came to California. It was the height of the Great Depression and Emerson had heard he might be able to get a job in California pouring concrete. Now the government is threatening to destroy the legacy they built for their family.

Hererra v. Wyoming

Farmers and Ranchers Are the Backbone of This Country

Farmers and ranchers lease federally managed land to raise their flocks and herds, and ultimately to feed millions of Americans. They pay large sums of money to lease those grazing lands. Some American Indian tribe members are claiming the right to hunt on the land the government leases to farmers and ranchers in the state of Wyoming, even though it’s a clear violation of their tribal treaty with the United States.

Kisor v. Wilkie

Honoring Our Commitment to Those Who Served

Federal agencies have been growing in size and influence for decades. This case represents a once-in-a-generation opportunity to turn back the tide. The case centers on a Vietnam War veteran, Mr. James L. Kisor, and his 37-year struggle to obtain veteran’s medical benefits. But what is at stake is much more than one man’s benefits—it is about reining in the out-of-control power of unelected, big-government bureaucrats.

Wilderness Society v. Trump

Even Presidents Aren't Above the Law

President Clinton and President Obama created two illegal national monuments in rural Utah, causing serious economic harm to the hard-working westerners who live in the area. President Trump reversed the land grab but was sued for his efforts to restore the rule of law.

American Stewards of Liberty v. U.S. Department of the Interior

Caught in the Government's Web

In 1988, the FWS listed as endangered the Bee Creek Cave Harvestman, a cave-dwelling spider found only in subterranean limestone caves in Travis and Williamson Counties, Texas. When the federal government bars use of private property to protect species that are found only in a local area and not throughout the country, it violates the Constitution’s Commerce Clause.

Caldara v. City of Boulder

Our Freedom Includes the Right to Self-Defense

The city of Boulder imposed a sweeping ban of the most popular and widely-owned firearms and magazines in America. Residents of Boulder now face heavy fines and jail time for the mere possession of firearms that are legal throughout the United States. In a blatant act of discrimination against a political minority, the city council also unconstitutionally raised the minimum age for firearm possession in Boulder city limits to twenty-one.

Brigida v. U.S. Department of Transportation

The FAA's Racial Politics Endangered Public Safety

The Obama administration dropped a skill-based system for selecting and hiring air traffic controllers, and replaced it with a new system designed to favor applicants on the basis of their race. The FAA purged its system of thousands of previously-qualified, ready-to-hire applicants simply because they did not fit the right biographical profile. The government endangered public safety and owes restitution for this grave injustice.
