U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson has denied motions by Wyoming and the federal government to alter her ruling that reinstated endangered species protections for the gray wolf in that state.

A hearing was held today in Jackson's courtroom. Although ESWR was unable to attend, a docket entry in the case states simply that the judge had denied the motions "for the reasons stated on the record in open court."

After Jackson issued her order a week ago (Sept. 23), Wyoming adopted emergency rules that the state said would protect wolves enough to allow them to remain under state management (see link above).

Here is the full docket entry:

The State of Wyoming's [70] Motion to Stay and Request to Expedite Consideration is Denied as Moot.

The [74] Motion to Alter or Amend Judgment filed by Safari Club International, National Rifle Association, and Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Inc. is Denied.
