In a decision handed down in a U.S. District Court in Denver, Judge Paul Friedman validated former President Clinton's creation of six national monuments just prior to the end of his term in office. The Mountain States Legal Defense Fund had challenged the constitutionality of the Antiquities Act saying Clinton had overstepped his authority under the act. The monuments in question are the Cascades-Siskiyou National Monument in Oregon, the Hanford Reach in Washington, the canyons of the Ancients in Colorado, and the Grand Canyon-Parashant, Ironwood Forest, and Sonoran national monuments in Arizona.
