ABSTRACT
The article discusses the case Earth Island Institute v. United States Forest Service, concerning the alleged violation of the National Environmental Policy Act and the National Forest Management Act. The Ninth Circuit reversed a district court decision allowing the Forest Service to log and sell timber from protected areas. These areas provide critical habitat for the California spotted owl. The request for a preliminary injunction to stop the logging was rejected by the District Court for the Eastern District of California, arguing that Earth Island was unlikely to succeed on the merits of its claims. The decision was reversed as a result of the Forest Service's failure to comply with its forest plan.
