Legal Document: Federal Judge Upholds Expansion of Ecological Wonder Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument
Stu Gillespie, Attorney, Rocky Mountains Office, Earthjustice: "That difference in the scope of analysis between the agencies has huge implications not just under the Clean Water Act but for cultural resources."
Kristen Boyles, Attorney, Northwest Office, Earthjustice: “This lawsuit seeks to create a conflict where none actually exists. This case presents arguments that are a means to an end. And the end being that Murphy timber does not want this expansion to stay in place.”
Josh Purtle, Attorney, Northern Rockies Office, Earthjustice: “The plan allows a huge amount of new road building to the detriment of grizzly bears and bull trout. It essentially says we’re going to change the requirements where you can build a road and how many miles you can build while maintaining the 2011 habitat conditions to protect grizzlies. But the plan doesn’t actually do that.”
