Forest Service v. Earth Island Institute

After the Ninth Circuit held that two post-fire logging projects in the Eldorado National Forest should be preliminarily enjoined because the plaintiffs had shown the possibility of irreparable harm and a high likelihood of success on their National Environmental Policy Act and National Forest Management Act claims, the agency petitioned the Supreme Court for review. Public Citizen assisted the plaintiffs in drafting the opposition to the petition. In March 2007, the Supreme Court denied the petition.
