On a pro bono basis, we represented Plaintiffs Sierra Club, the Texas Conservation Alliance, and the Forest Conservation Council in a lawsuit challenging a logging project in the Sam Houston National Forest, near Huntsville, Texas. Among other claims, Plaintiffs challenged the project on the basis of Defendants’ failures to carry out required surveys of protected, threatened, and endangered wildlife species in the Forest. In 2005, Plaintiffs won a preliminary injunction stopping the project pending a decision on the merits of Plaintiffs’ claims. The court permanently enjoined the project later that year after granting summary judgment on two of Plaintiffs’ claims. The parties tried their remaining claims and later mediated the case and reached a settlement allowing the Forest Service to carry out a modified version of the project while incorporating additional protections for the Lone Star Hiking Trail, a National Recreational Trail located within the Sam Houston National Forest.
