Today EPIC is in court asking for an injunction on the Seiad-Horse Project, which is a timber sale proposed in the Klamath National Forest. The project targets over 1,000 acres on the Siskiyou Crest for clearcut logging. The proposed timber sale is located within an inventoried Roadless Area, a Late Successional Reserve and other areas that are critical habitat for species like the Pacific fisher and northern spotted owl.
The federal case was filed in the Eastern District of California and is being heard by the Honorable Judge Nunley. Nunley asked probing questions about the project, showing that he was well acquainted with the project. He said he would take it under advisement and did not issue a ruling from the bench. We don’t know when the judge will rule, but as soon as a decision is made, we will update our readers.
