Because We're All In This Together
Matt Sandler, RMW's Staff Attorney, started his sabbatical on Saturday following the amazing news of his win of the Wolf Creek pass case. As part of his sabbatical, he will write a series of blog posts about his travels in the aptly named The SabbMattical Chronicles. Here is his very first volume of those chronicles.
The Honorable Senior Judge Richard P. Matsch issued an Order today affirming that the Forest Service "failed to consider important aspects of the issues before them, offered an explanation for their decision that runs counter to the evidence, failed to base their decision on consideration of the relevant factors, and based their decision on an analysis that is contrary to law." This Order concludes another chapter in this decades long saga to protect Wolf Creek pass from a large scale residential and commercial development that could accommodate 8,000 to 10,000 visitors.
By taking action, you will help to ensure that future generations have the opportunity to enjoy watching the Gunnison sage-grouse dance at sunrise, and benefit all of the other species that call this area home.
