"Judge kills Forest Service limit on appeals"
"HELENA, Mont. - A federal judge struck down regulations that limited the public's ability to challenge U.S. Forest Service decisions on timber sales and other projects. "The judge issued an injunction Monday against a rule that required people to specify objections to Forest Service projects while they are under consideration, or forfeit the right to challenge them later. The injunction applies nationwide."
