Supreme Court Refuses To Review Mining Ban

On its first day of the new session, the U.S. Supreme Court is denying to take on of a case centered on mining around the Grand Canyon.  The Obama administration put about one million acres near the national park off-limits to new mining claims in 2012.

The high court is declining to review the ban.
