Artist Christo got a judicial nod for his controversial project to drape miles of fabric over the Arkansas River.
United States District Judge William Martinez ruled Friday that the Bureau of Land Management did not violate federal law in its November 2011 approval of Christo's 'Over The River' project.
Opponents to the project say they will carry on their fight for environmental reasons. Rags Over the Arkansas River (ROAR) claimed that the BLM's decision violated the Federal Land Policy and Management Act and the National Environmental Policy Act.
Christo aims to place massive swathes of silver fabric in eight sections across a 42-mile stretch of the river between Cañon City and Salida in Colorado.
