National Wildlife Federation v. NMFS, 254 F.Supp. 2d 1196 (D. Or. 2003)
Challenge to NMFS’ 2000 biological opinion on FCRPS operations. The District Court of Oregon (Judge Redden) finds arbitrary and capricious NMFS’s defined “action area” and the agency’s reliance on off-site federal actions that have not undergone section 7 consultation and non-federal mitigation actions that are not reasonably certain to occur in order to reach the “no jeopardy” conclusion.
