High Country News Explains 9th Circuit Court of Appeals Victory
A lot of riders cheered our recent legal victory when the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals overturned its long-standing “federal defendant” rule making it easier for OHV, timber, ranchers, and other natural resource interests to intervene in environmental lawsuits.
However, many users did not really understand what it actually meant to the OHV community and the impact it would have on the access fight. Fortunately for HQ readers, our friends at the sometimes-left leaning High Country News published an excellent article that helps explain the court ruling.
