U.S. Forest Service Plans for California National Forests Ruled Illegal

Date : 2nd October 2009, Source : ENS



SAN FRANCISCO, California, October 2, 2009 (ENS) - U.S. Forest Service management plans for four Southern California national forests do not adequately protect those forests' wildest landscapes, a federal district court judge has ruled. U.S. District Court Judge Marilyn Hall Patel sided with seven environmental groups, ruling that the Forest Service failed to assess cumulative damage to those national forests that would be caused by road building and other development in most of the forests' roadless areas, in violation of the National Environmental Policy Act.
