Northwest Ecosystem Alliance v. Allen
On February 2, 2007, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) decision denying a petition to classify western gray squirrels as a “distinct population segment” entitled to listing protection. The court upheld a challenge to the governing FWS policy, finding that it is entitled to deference under Chevron and that it comports with the ESA.
