This article presents information on the case of City of Albuquerque v. U.S. Department of the Interior. The court ruled that Albuquerque in New Mexico has a legal standing to challenge a decision by the U.S. Interior Department to locate office space outside the city's business district (CBD). The city claimed that despite its recommendation of a downtown site, Interior chose a location outside the CBD. Interior contended that the city could not prove it had suffered any harm, because other government offices have since occupied the only site offered within the CBD.
