Briefing by the National Trust and the Department of Justice in the litigation to protect the James River at Jamestown was completed before the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals this fall. On December 7, 2018, oral arguments were heard before a three judge panel. This appeal challenges the lower court’s decision that the Army Corps of Engineers complied with the National Environmental Policy Act and the National Historic Preservation Act in issuing a permit to Dominion Virginia Power to construct a massive transmission line across the James River in the viewshed of Carter’s Grove National Historic Landscape, Colonial Parkway, and Jamestown Island. We expect to receive a decision sometime in the new year.
