By FindLaw Staff on August 05, 2009 4:53 PM

In a challenge to a Forest Service rule repealing the nationwide protections of its Roadless Rule and inviting states to pursue varying rules for roadless area management, judgment for plaintiffs is affirmed where it was unreasonable for the Forest Service to assert that the environment, listed species, and their critical habitats would be unaffected by this regulatory change.
