Federal court upholds protection for threatened marbled murrelets by rejecting timber industry lawsuit – PDN


You would think that after all these decades, that the timber industry would get to work on working with the environmental organizations rather than constantly fighting a losing battle. Collaboration gains far more than constant warfare.

A federal appeals court has rejected a lawsuit by the timber industry seeking to strip Endangered Species Act protection from a threatened seabird that nests in old-growth forests. Environmentalists said the ruling Friday by the U.S. Court of Appeals in Washington, D.C., should mark the end of a 15-year legal battle over logging trees used by marbled murrelets along the coasts of Oregon, Washington and northern California.
