Case Summary Citation

2011 WL 4820942 (9th Cir. 2011)


In a 2007 Travel Management Plan, the United States Forest Service limited roads and trails designated for motorized recreation use and implemented a dispersed camping rule. Alleging violations of the Montana Wilderness Study Act and the National Environmental Policy Act, groups in support of motorized recreation challenged the Service’s Plan. The trial court granted the recreational groups’ motion for summary judgment on both the Study Act and NEPA allegations; the Ninth Circuit reversed.
