National Mall Tours of Washington v. DOI, No. 16-5080 (D.C. Cir. 2017)Annotate this Case
After Big Bus Tours won a contract with the Park Service that would allow it to provide guided tours of the National Mall, National Mall Tours filed suit against the Park Service under the Administrative Procedure Act, 5 U.S.C. 500 et seq., and the National Park Service Concessions Management Improvement Act of 1998, 54 U.S.C. 101911 et seq. The D.C. Circuit affirmed the district court's grant of summary judgment to the Park Service regarding the agency's decision to award the contract to Big Bus Tours; because National Mall Tours lacks standing to bring its claim regarding submission of the contract to certain congressional committees, the district court lacked jurisdiction to hear it; and the court vacated the portions of the district court's order addressing that claim, remanding the case with instructions to dismiss it for lack of jurisdiction.
