Environmental Group Asks Judge to Reconsider Dismissal of Project that Involves Jonesboro Developers

MAY 23, 2006 - Posted at 4:45 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A pair of environmental groups are asking a judge to reconsider the dismissal of their lawsuit in the Bass Pro shopping center case.

U.S. District Judge George Howard, Jr. ruled May 9 that groups that filed a lawsuit did not have standing in the case.  The Audobon Society of Central Arkansas and the Arkansas Nature Alliance filed the motion to reconsider today. 

The groups are trying to stop the construction of a shopping center in a wetlands area in North Little Rock.  The $130 million development by the Jonesboro-based Belz-Burrow company will be anchored by a Bass Pro Shop store.
