Supreme Court Excludes Public Comment, Appeal of Small Timber Sales

Date : 3rd March 2009, Source : ENS



WASHINGTON, DC, March 3, 2009 (ENS) - The U.S. Supreme Court today ruled that five conservation groups do not have the right to challenge a U.S. Forest Service exemption of small timber sales from the notice, comment, and appeal process it uses for more significant land management decisions. In a 5-4 decision, the court found that the groups had not shown that they had "standing," to mount a legal challenge to the exemption since the 2003 timber sale originally at issue in the case had been withdrawn by the Forest Service.
