National Wildlife Federation v. NMFS, Civ. No. 01-640-RE, Opinion & Order (D. Or. Aug. 2, 2011)
Challenge to NMFS’ 2008/2010 biological opinion on FCRPS operations. District Court of Oregon (Judge Redden) found that because the opinion’s no jeopardy conclusion is based on unidentified habitat measures, NMFS determination that operations after 2013 will not jeopardize the species is arbitrary and capricious.
