The Sierra Club, the Ohio Environmental Council and the Center for Biological Diversity have filed a lawsuit aimed at blocking plans to allow fracking in the Wayne National Forest.

The lawsuit against the U.S. Bureau of Land Management and U.S. Forest Service aims to void leases the groups say violate the National Environmental Policy Act. The two agencies have yet to comment.
