Fourth Circuit hears arguments on Navy's Outlying Landing Field

Yesterday lawyers for the Navy asked the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals to overturn a lower court decision that stops the Navy's plans to build the OLF in Washington County, North Carolina. The appeal centers on environmental issues. The main argument is whether or not the Navy fully studied the environmental impact on the Washington County site. Because of environmental concerns, a district judge enjoined construction.
