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.

Whited v. United States of America

The Worst Neighbor in the World

Michael Whited purchased a modest home in Colorado’s Fourmile Canyon. He and his wife live in this beautiful area of Boulder County. Unfortunately, Mr. Whited’s next-door neighbor is the Federal Bureau of Land Management on whose property stood a dangerous, crumbling concrete mining shed. Despite numerous warnings, the Bureau did nothing to fix the problem, and the shed eventually collapsed, doing great damage to the Whited’s property.  Wouldn’t you know it–the Bureau is trying to skirt responsibility for the damage.

Nesbitt v. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers

2nd Amendment Rights Must Be Protected on Federal Lands

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which oversees vast areas of recreational lands that are open to the public, unconstitutionally prohibits visitors from exercising their Second Amendment protected right to self-defense in every way imaginable. Thanks to Mountain States’ victory on behalf of its clients, Elizabeth Nesbitt and Alan Baker, the Corps of Engineers is currently prohibited from enforcing its unconstitutional ordinance in the State of Idaho.
