Federal judge rejects environmentalists’ case for halting opening Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge

Daily Mail 10th Aug 2018 , A federal judge on Thursday rejected a request to bar the public from a
Colorado wildlife refuge that was once part of a nuclear weapons plant.
Environmentalists and community activists had asked the judge to issue a
preliminary injunction that would prohibit opening Rocky Flats National
Wildlife Refuge northwest of Denver while the courts hear their lawsuit
claiming the government did not study public safety closely enough.

U.S. District Judge Philip A. Brimmer said the activists had not shown that
radioactive exposure at the site was bad enough to cause them irreparable
harm, so they had not met the judicial standard for an injunction.
