The case was filed in 2018 by Friends of Animals and the complaint is now in its third iteration.
Last year the court denied a request by FOA to halt the Onaqui Mountain roundup.
In the latest amendment, FOA seeks an order prohibiting future Onaqui roundups and a return of the horses to the HMA.
The Utah Attorney General’s Office issued a statement last week indicating that the court had granted its motion to intervene in the case, in opposition to FOA.
Refer to Section II, Course of Proceedings, in the State’s motion for a case history.
The next step will be a hearing for summary judgment according to the announcement.
The State says it’s motivated by an interest in wildlife, not permitted grazing.
