ABSTRACT
This article discusses litigation involving the statute of limitations on designation of critical species under the U.S. Endangered Species Act. The Center for Biological Diversity sued Sue Hamilton, the Director of the Fish and Wildlife Service for failure to protect the habitats of the Blue Shiner and the Goldline Darter. These darter fish are only found in the river systems of Alabama and Georgia. The Court of Appeals ruled that the seven year statute of limitations had expired and that no continuing violation stemmed from failure to designate a critical habitat.
