Abstract: From cover letter: "Enclosed please find for your information, a copy of Judge David Ezra's June 25, 1991 opinion permanently enjoining all United States funding, permits, participation, and decision making in all activities related to the undersea geothermal 'Project,' except those activities necessary to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement or to keep informed on the geothermal cable 'Project's" status. On the United States' Motion to Dismiss, Judge Ezra found that Senator Inouye's legislation authorizing an EIS with previously appropriated federal funds did not 'moot' the case and, therefore, the suit could not be dismissed. On the Plaintiff's Motion for Summary Judgment, the Justice Department did not even file a memorandum in opposition. The judge granted the motion summarily."
