Partner Mark Barron and Associate Alex Obrecht, representing the Western Energy Alliance (WEA), filed a lawsuit in federal court on Aug. 11, 2016, seeking to hold the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) accountable to its statutory obligations to conduct quarterly oil and gas lease sales and to make the sales more transparent.
