Opinion

SUMMARY [1]

The panel reversed in part and affirmed in part the district court’s judgment in favor of the United States Forest Service in an action challenging the Forest Service’s approval of the restoration of a flood-damaged road in the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest in Nevada.

The panel reversed the district court’s holding on exhaustion, and held that each of the claims presented on appeal were adequately exhausted by plaintiff’s submissions to the Forest Service.

The panel affirmed the district court’s alternative holding on the merits, granting summary judgment in favor of the Forest Service.

The panel held that the Forest Service’s Record of Decision conformed to the National Forest Management Act, Executive Order 11988, and the National Environmental Policy Act.
