ABSTRACT
The article reports on the opposition of Honorable Clarence Addison Brimmer Jr., federal judge for the district of Wyoming, against the Roadless Area Conservation Rule imposed by the Clinton administration in 2001. The rule is designed to protect 58.5 million acres of national forest, mostly in the West. When he reaffirmed his nationwide injunction against the roadless rule, Brimmer has issued a series of rulings against it. His decision was argued by Enviros, the Obama administration, Congress and the states.
