Bohmker v. Oregon

United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit

903 F.3d 1029 (2018)

Facts

The State of Oregon (defendant) enacted Senate Bill 3, a statute prohibiting the use of motorized mining equipment in rivers and streams designated as essential salmon habitat, with the express purpose of protecting essential salmon habitat. The statute, which was enacted outside of Oregon’s procedural regime for land-use-planning laws, applied state-wide, including waters located on federal lands. Joshua Caleb Bohmker and a group of other individuals with mining claims on federal lands located in Oregon (the miners) (plaintiffs) challenged the statute, arguing that, although it was couched as an environmental law, the statue was actually a land-use-planning law that applied to federal lands and was therefore preempted by federal law. The parties filed cross-motions for summary judgment, and the district court granted Oregon’s motion. The miners appealed.
