Judge: Trump's Wish To See 125 Million Acres Of Arctic Ocean Drilled 'Unlawful And Invalid'

CNN reports an executive order by President Donald Trump allowing offshore oil drilling of tens of millions of acres in the Arctic Ocean is "unlawful and invalid." The ruling on Friday from US District Court Judge Sharon Gleason in Alaska means a drilling ban for much of the Arctic Ocean off of Alaska will go back into effect.

In April of 2017, Trump issued an executive order reversing three memoranda and one executive order issued by President Barack Obama during his administration.
