Case covered on NEPA Lab +

The recent decision of the federal district court in Sacramento to deny the Forest Service's motion to dismiss a challenge to the Upper Echo Lake Hazardous Fuels Reduction Project as moot was covered on the blog, NEPA Lab +.  It builds on past precedent that the federal government is likely to find problematic, barring agencies from skirting NEPA then declaring projects complete and seeking to moot potential challenges.  For the public, the precedent is an important victory.
