S.J. Quinney College of Law professor Bob Keiter was quoted in the January 20, 2016 issue of Greenwire. In the story titled, “No legal grounds for militants’ land claims — experts,” Keiter commented on the legal claims of activists occupiers of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge:
On at least half a dozen occasions dating back to the 1890s, the Supreme Court has ruled that the government’s authority to regulate public lands, as well as wildlife and activities on them, is “without limits,” said Robert Keiter, a professor at the University of Utah’s S.J. Quinney College of Law who has written extensively on the issue.
“That’s as broad a statement as I’ve ever seen from the Supreme Court on the scope of congressional power,” Keiter said.
