Deja Vu

Didn’y we try this before?

– Critics in a yearslong fight to block expansion of a ski resort on an Arizona mountain that American Indian tribes consider sacred are suing the U.S. Forest Service.
The lawsuit filed Monday comes more than three months after the U.S. Supreme Court denied an appeal from tribes that said the use of treated wastewater to make artificial snow threatened their religious and cultural survival.
The lawsuit filed by the Save the Peaks Coalition and a group of citizens contends the Forest Service failed to consider the human health risks of ingesting snow made with treated wastewater at the Arizona Snowbowl resort outside Flagstaff.
A panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals previously sided with the tribes on that contention. The full court later overturned the decision, and the U.S. Supreme Court upheld it.

That is what the Sierra Club does. Just keep suing until someone listens or until the business runs out of money.
