"W e have already told the court that we believe the Secretary of the Interior has no authority to cancel these leases and we will certainly argue it again. To suggest that after all of this effort, after all the time and money invested in studying this to death, that somehow the law was violated, I just think it is insane. No reasonable person could make that argument."

William Perry Pendley, an attorney with the Mountain States Legal Foundation who is representing Solenex, about the Interior Department's decision to cancel leases held by the Louisiana company in the Badger-Two Medicine area of Montana.
