Court asked to review sonar use decision
The justice department asked the Supreme Court to review a federal appeals court decision limiting the Navy's use of sonar off the Southern California coast.
A petition claims the ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco hurts the Navy's ability to train soldiers and marines for service in wartime.
The lower court issued its injunction after several environmental groups argued that sonar could be harmful to dolphins and whales.
There is a similar order in Hawaii.
