Supreme Court rejects roadless rule case

The Supreme Court today said it would not review a Clinton administration rule that prohibits most roads and logging across roughly 45 million acres of national forests, effectively ending more than a decade of legal wrangling. The court denied petitions from Wyoming and the Colorado Mining Association to overturn the 2001 roadless rule, which initially sought protection for 58.5 million acres, or nearly one-third of Forest Service lands.
