Feds agree to $380K attorney fees

Federal officials and environmental groups "have engaged in good faith, confidential settlement negotiations" that have resulted in an agreement for the feds to pay the groups $380,000 to settle attorney fees.

The agreement stems from a lawsuit filed by the Greater Yellowstone Coalition, Defenders of Wildlife, Natural Resources Defense Council, Sierra Club, Humane Society of the United States, etc. back in June 2009 challenging the delisting of wolves. The federal court heard cross motions for summary judgement five months later and eventually ruled that the environmental groups were right in part and wrong in part. The feds appealed the case to the Ninth Circuit where it was dismissed as moot.
