We received a favorable decision last August from a three (3) Judge panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals affirming the trial court's earlier decision to uphold the Bureau of Land Management's (BLM) Record of Decision to reopen most of the area that had been closed to OHV activity by an earlier lawsuit brought by the Center For Biological Diversity (CBD).
The CBD then filed a Petition for Certiorari (review) of that decision. I have now received a notice that denied that petition for a rehearing, en banc, and no judge has requested a vote on whether to rehear the matter en banc. That ends that matter as far as the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals is concerned.
