Bears Ears National Monument has been the focus of political intrigue which is unique in the 112-year history of the Antiquities Act. On December 4, 2017 President Trump reduced the size of the national monument as proclaimed by President Obama. Litigation before the Federal District Court in Washington, DC is pending to determine which configuration will take precedence. Professor Mark Squillace of CU Law has written and spoken extensively on the issues in play in the Bears Ears litigation.
