U.S. Supreme Court Will Receive Third Brief From SCI

SCI’s Litigation Section is drafting an amicus brief in support of a petition filed by the State of Wyoming in its challenge to the U.S. Forest Service’s Roadless Rule.  Wyoming is asking the Supreme Court to consider its appeal of a Tenth Circuit ruling that upheld the legality of the Roadless Rule.  The Rule restricts the construction or reconstruction of roads in millions of acres of the nations’ forests.  SCI’s brief will explain to the Court how the Roadless Rule impairs the hunting and wildlife conservation interests of SCI members and the hunting community generally by making it impossible for wildlife conservation, management and recreational opportunities to be analyzed in accordance with adaptive management principles or on a forest, state and/or regional basis.  This will be the third amicus curiae brief that SCI has submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court.
