Imagine Ed Poitevents surprise when he was told by the Fish & Wildlife Service that his land in Louisiana was a critical habitat for the Dusky Gopher Frog, a rare amphibian species that hasnt been seen anywhere in his state in 50 years, and couldnt survive there without completely transforming the landscape.

But this absurd case isnt about frogs. If the federal government can declare Eds land as a critical habitat, they can declare any land critical habitat.

On October 1st, 2018, the Supreme Court of the United States heard arguments on this case. We will update when a ruling is made.
