Catawba Riverkeeper Foundation v. NC Dep't of Transp., 15-2285

In an appeal involving the proposed construction of the Gaston East-West Connector, a 22-mile toll road in North Carolina spanning from southeast Gaston County to west Mecklenburg County with new crossings over the South Fork and Catawba Rivers, challenging the environmental analysis conducted for the Connector, the district court's grant of summary judgment to plaintiffs is vacated where, because the North Carolina General Assembly stripped the Connector of its funding and repealed the statute that expressly authorized its construction, the appeal is moot.
