The article focuses on the order of District Court Judge Donald Molloy to stop the logging activities at the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest in Montana. Three environmental groups have appealed to Molloy regarding the 2,600-acre timber harvest. Molloy also ordered the groups to post a 100,000 dollar bond and compensate the Forest Service and a private contractor for losses due to the delay. Lumber companies reacted to Molloy's decision that it was an unfair plan. The plaintiffs are being forced to risk bankruptcy just to get into the court.
