Things are heating up in the age-old fight to save Red Lady aka Mt. Emmons which is located above the Town of Crested Butte. DLA Piper – the world’s largest legal firm – has been retained by the Red Lady Coalition to continue the opposition to mining molybdenum in Crested Butte’s backyard. The firm is providing its services for free.
Chairman of the firm is George Mitchell, former majority leader in the U.S. Senate. Among the figures employed in the firm’s Regulatory and Legislative Affairs Group are both Dick Gephardt and Dick Armey, both former majority leaders in the U.S. House of Representatives. Gephardt was a Democrat from Missouri and Armey a Republican from Texas.
“We will explore all appropriate avenues — both legal and political — to make sure that the Red Lady retains its character as one of the country’s treasured natural landmarks,” said Lisa Dewey, a partner in DLA Piper.
