Boise residents and an environmental conservation group have filed a lawsuit against the U.S. Air Force in an effort to stop planned training exercises over nine cities in southern Idaho.

The complaint filed Monday lists potential hazards of the training and says the Air Force didn’t do enough to inform the public or local cities about its plans. Those who filed the complaint include Boise residents Anne Hausrath and Kathryn Railsback, among others, and Great Old Broads for Wilderness, a national organization with a Boise chapter.
