Robertson v. Seattle Audubon Soc'y

ELR Citation: 23 ELR 20020
Nos. Nos. 91-35378, -35564, 965 F.2d 776/(9th Cir., 06/02/1992) Injunctions vacated

The court reverses two district court decisions enjoining 16 fiscal year 1990 timber sales by the U.S. Forest Service that were found to violate the National Forest Management Act, and remands the case to the district court with instructions to vacate the injunctions. The court grants the government's unopposed motion for summary reversal of the appeals based on the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in Robertson v. Seattle Audubon Society, 22 ELR 20663.

[Other opinions in this litigation are published at 20 ELR 21167, 21 ELR 20019 and 21040, and 22 ELR 20663.]
