IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
June 11, 2009
CONSERVATION CONGRESS; CITIZENS FOR BETTER FORESTRY; MARY LEE STEFFENSEN; AND KAREN WILSON, PLAINTIFFS,
UNITED STATES FOREST SERVICE, DEFENDANT.
The opinion of the court was delivered by: Garland E. Burrell, Jr. United States District Judge
On June 5, 2009, Plaintiffs filed a motion for "an injunction of logging and other ground-disturbing activities on the East Fork timber sale, pending the appeal of this case." Defendant opposes the motion.
The motion is denied for the reasons stated in the Order filed June 4, 2009, in which it is revealed that Plaintiffs have not "establish[ed they are] likely to succeed on the merits, [and are] likely to suffer irreparable harm in the absence of [injunctive] relief, that the balance of equities tips in [their] favor, and that an injunction is in the public interest." Winter v. Natural Resources Defense Council, 129 S.Ct. 365, 374 (2008). Therefore, Plaintiffs' request for an injunction is denied.
