Case Summary Citation

2012 WL 4106427 (W.D.N.C. Sept. 19, 2012)


The United States District Court for the Western District of North Carolina determined the Nantahala National Forest properly amended the Forest Plan to prohibit and restrict vehicular access to the Upper Tellico Off Highway Vehicle System. On summary judgment, the court found the Forest Service followed the appropriate procedures in deciding that erosion and sedimentation related to off-roading were imperiling the native brook trout.
