Forest Service and QLG prevail in
Ninth Circuit Court

January 19, 2006- US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals affirms US Forest Service Environmental Analysis and denies NEPA Activists appeals-

“The EA (Environmental Analysis) demonstrates a “hard look” at the MVP’s (Meadow Valley Projects's) impacts both on the California spotted owl and on the safety of nearby communities. Accordingly, we affirm the district court’s summary judgment in favor of FS. Because we affirm the district court on the merits, SNFPC’s request for an injunction pending FS’s compliance with NEPA is moot.”

Decision & Judge Fletcher concurrence on cumulative impact of the Meadow Valley Project
