BRC and Legal Partners Object to Court Ordered Interim Closures

OAKLEY, CA (April 5, 2012) -- BlueRibbon Coalition Western Representative, Don Amador, has put together some links to provide greater detail on the court order threatening closures in Eldorado National Forest.

Below are links to documents related to the ongoing Eldorado Lawsuit, including the March 28, 2012 response from California Association of 4 Wheel Drive Clubs, California Enduro Riders Association, American Motorcyclist Association District 36, and BlueRibbon Coalition--opposing the Forest Service's proposed order re: Case No. 2:09-CV-02523-LKK-JFM DEFENDANT-INTERVENORS' RESPONSE TO DEFENDANTS' PROPOSED ORDER.

Eldorado March#109 - Plaintiffs' Response to Defendants' Proposed Order 03-28-12.pdf

"Until the court answers our response to the proposed order," said Don Amador, "the named routes are still closed by the seasonal closure. We expect their answer shortly."

"As you can see from these pleadings," Amador continued, "the aforementioned intervenors are the last line of defense against the immediate closure of the routes in question."

Here is the Forest Service news release on the court order

Thanks, everyone, for your continued support as we fight the efforts by anti-access groups to close public roads and trails!

Thanks Bob. BRC links to documents explain it a lot better than trying to piece it together from a bunch of posts in the threads.

Interesting note:

FEDERAL DEFENDANTSí BRIEF IN SUPPORT OF PROPOSED ORDER


Quote:
Federal Defendants hereby submit this brief in support of the proposed order submitted herewith and in compliance with this Courtís Order, ECF No. 106. Federal Defendants have consulted with the parties in this litigation. Plaintiffs have not yet had an opportunity to formulate a position on the proposed order. Intervenor Defendant opposes the proposed order
Federal Defendents = Forest Service
Intervenor Defendents = OHV groups
Plaintiffs = CBD/CSNC aka eco whackos

Quote:
To address the Courtís Order, the Forest Service proposes that public use of wheeled motorized vehicles be prohibited along the entire length of 18 of the 42 routes.
Link to said FS Proposal <----Click here.


Quote:
The Forest Service has created a field survey method for the revised RCO Analysis for S&G #100 to determine whether any specific route segment of the 42 routes intersecting a meadow may not meet S&G #100. Markman Decl. at ∂11-13. The Forest Service also has conducted some preliminary on-the-ground evaluations of all meadows along these 42 routes. Id. The preliminary data indicates that some of the route segments intersecting meadows may be consistent with S&G #100 while some routes may not be consistent. Markman Decl. at ∂13.The Forest Service will complete this analysis to determine which of the meadows crossed by these 42 routes may or may not be consistent with RCO#2 S&G #100 before issuing a decision.
This means the FS recommended Closure of these trails after the ENF Hydrologist did a somewhat "rapid assessment" to determine if he felt the trails could remain open (all or in part) during the summer.

Quote:
The Forest Service proposes that continued public use of wheeled motorized vehicles be permitted along portions of the remaining 24 routes. See Ex. A and 2012 Meadows Maps for 42 Routes (showing travel permitted on portions of routes 08N23B, 08N35, 09N01, 09N04, 09N08, 09N54, 09N82, 09N83, 10N03, 10N06, 10N13, 10N21, 10N32, 10NY04, 11N09A, 11N22, 11N23F, 11N70, 12NY06, 12NY15, 13N24, 14N05, 14N27, 17E24).
Again - it appears as though the DOJ/FS let us down. They went along with the order

Now we are waiting for the Judge to choose somewhere to the left, right or center...

In the mean time, we can make a little noise with our congress Critters who seriously need to know that the economy in ElDorado County is about to get hit really HARD.

Golly, Bob... this here interweb is all newfangled and such, but it seems like making information more accessible by eliminating clicks might be helpful.

Really.

It takes a while to read all this stuff about the Eldo and where court things are, but it is WORTH it if this is your backyard. Thanks to all of you helping to get the facts out there.

I read all that stuff and wonder too. So if the plaintiff and the defendant agree on the closers were in deep trouble. Can you spell Teleco?

I for sure don't know what the next actions need to be. I don't want to put effort into actions that are not right for this pivotal moment.
In another post someone said they don't like providing information on a silver platter, which I found to be a slap in the face. I did order the book they mentioned as it was $10, but I thought NEPA that was done back in 2008 is what we needed to follow?
