ORDER: Johnson Bar Fire Salvage project stopped

"The Forest Service Defendants assert the timber must be salvaged immediately before it loses economic value; but, the record indicates also the Project is predicted to span up to a five year period. The Plaintiffs and the Court are committed to move this case forward in an expedited fashion. Therefore, the Court finds that the potential harm to the Wild and Scenic corridor and adjacent area, as well as the potential harm to the river system from the erosion and increased sedimentation, outweighs the hardships caused by the delay to timber harvesting." -page 39
