Group Sues BLM for Records About Nevada Standoff

Posted: Updated:
An advocacy group is suing the federal Bureau of Land Management for records it says the agency is withholding about its handling of a standoff with supporters of a southern Nevada rancher in a dispute over grazing rights.

Federal officials in Nevada and Washington, D.C., didn't immediately respond Friday to messages about the lawsuit.

It was filed Thursday in Washington by Public Employees for Environmental Responsibility.
 
It alleges the BLM isn't responding to Freedom of Information Act requests for documents about the BLM's April 12 decision to halt a roundup of Cliven Bundy's cattle in the Gold Butte area 80 miles northeast of Las Vegas.

The group also alleges the BLM is refusing for the first time since 1996 to provide an annual accounting of threats and attacks against employees.  (AP)
