Oregon Natural Resources Council v. Allen, ___F.3d___
On February 16, 2007, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals invalidated a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) “incidental take statement” issued for the take of the northern spotted owl as part of a timber harvest. The court remanded the case to the District Court with instructions to grant summary judgment in favor of the plaintiff Oregon Natural Resources Council (ONRC).
