IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA
August 26, 2009
KLAMATH-SISKIYOU WILDLANDS CENTER, ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION INFORMATION CENTER, AND KLAMATH FOREST ALLIANCE,
PATRICIA A. GRANTHAM, KLAMATH NATIONAL FOREST SUPERVISOR, AND UNITED STATES FOREST SERVICE, DEFENDANTS.
STIPULATION AND PROPOSED ORDER Plaintiffs, TO VOLUNTARILY DISMISS WITHOUT PREJUDICE
Plaintiffs Klamath-Siskiyou Wildlands Center, Environmental Protection Information Center, and Klamath Forest Alliance (Plaintiffs), and Defendants Patricia A. Grantham and United States Forest Service (Defendants) submit this stipulation and proposed order voluntarily dismissing without prejudice the above captioned action.
On August 21st 2009, counsel for the Defendants informed the Court and the Plaintiffs that the project at issue in this case was being withdrawn, and the Forest Service then issued a notice to interested parties on that date, stating that Forest Supervisor Grantham had "decided to withdraw the Panther Fire Salvage Decision Notice and FONSI dated August 10, 2009. No activities implementing the Panther Fire Salvage Project will be undertaken unless and until further NEPA documentation is prepared and a new decision is issued." This notice is attached as Exhibit A.
Because the Defendants have withdrawn the challenged underlying agency decision, the parties hereby stipulate to voluntarily dismiss without prejudice this action, pursuant to FED. R. CIV. P. 41(a)(1)(A)(ii). Although it appears that no Court action is required, a proposed order granting the requested relief is provided.
IT IS SO STIPULATED.
