 The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated The Roadless Rule, which protects nearly 50 million acres of National Forest lands against exploitation.
The legal maneuvering was fast and furious for a decade. At one point  the Bush administration tried to replace the original rule with one  that would effectively turn over management of the national forests to  the governors of the states the forests are in. Earthjustice made quick  work of that ploy, getting it tossed promptly. Last spring, the Tongass  Exemption was tossed as well.
Today’s news is that the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver has  just ruled that an injunction blocking the rule—at least trying to block  the rule—issued by a judge in Wyoming, cannot stand and is overturned.  The ruling was unanimous, which should help it stand.

Some good news.
