AMANDA WEAKLAND, and
BUREAU OF LAND MANAGEMENT, an agency of the United States,
PARK CENTER WATER DISTRICT,
This matter is before the Court sua sponte.
On January 13, 2015, the Court granted, in part, and denied, in part, Plaintiffs’ motion for
summary judgment (ECF No. 125) on Plaintiffs’ Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C. § 1365(a)(1), claim
(ECF No. 1 ¶¶ 34-38).
On August 25, 2015, Defendant Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) submitted a report
stating that all unpermitted discharges had ceased and that BLM’s contractors were finishing site
work. (ECF No. 134.) On August 25, 2015, Plaintiffs filed a “Notice of Remaining Claims”
stating that no further issues remained for litigation beyond Plaintiffs’ claims for litigation costs as
authorized by 33 U.S.C. § 1365(d). (ECF No. 135.)
On November 3, 2015, Plaintiffs filed a motion for litigation expenses and attorneys’ fees.
(ECF No. 141.)
On January 4, 2016, the parties filed a joint motion for a “Consent Order.” (ECF No.
146.) The parties advised the Court that the Consent Order would resolve Plaintiffs’ motion for
litigation expenses and attorneys’ fees. (ECF No. 146 ¶¶ 5-6.)
On January 7, 2016, the Court granted the parties’ joint motion for a Consent Order. (ECF
No. 147.) The Court ordered BLM to pay Plaintiffs the sum of $92,750.00. (ECF No. 147 at 2.)
In light of the foregoing, the Court:
DENIES as MOOT Plaintiffs’ motion for litigation expenses and attorneys’ fees
(ECF No. 141);
DIRECTS the Clerk of the Court to enter JUDGMENT in Plaintiffs’ favor and
against Defendant BLM with respect to Plaintiffs’ Clean Water Act claim; and
DIRECTS the Clerk of the Court to CLOSE the matter.
DATED this 7th day of January, 2016.
