Students in the Environmental Law Clinic at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law on Feb. 1 will sue in federal court to block the proposed "Over the River" industrial-scale art project. The project proposes hanging material panels over 5.9 miles of the Arkansas River, in scattered sections over a 42-mile stretch.
The suit is being being filed on behalf of the non-profit, all-volunteer group Rags Over the Arkansas River (ROAR). The group opposes the industrial scale art project citing environmental issues and dangers to the residents and visitors to the area.
The lawsuit will spell out these objections and seek to stop federal permitting. The case is being filed by DU student lawyers Mason Brown and Justine Shepherd whose work will be overseen by attorney and professor Michael Harris. The students, Harris, and ROAR spokesperson will be available for comment outside the federal courthouse after the suit is filed.
