QLG and Forest Service Win in Court... activists lose

"public interest in accomplishing the fuel management envisioned by the Slapjack, Basin and Empire projects, which are designed to both immediately reduce fire risk and promote the long-term development of more fire-resilient forests, together with the public interest in providing protection and economic stability to local communities, outweigh any short-term impact to the owl, fisher and marten as discussed above.

For all the foregoing reasons, Plaintiffs’ Motion for Preliminary Injunction is hereby DENIED."
