The Center for Biological Diversity is busy these days. In recent weeks they have filed numerous suits against the Forest Service and Fish and Wildlife Service throughout the country. In their latest suit on the Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest the group challenges the Bridgeport Travel Management Project because it allegedly authorizes the use of motorized vehicles on 220 new miles of roads and trails across the Ranger District, in addition to 1,290 miles of roads and trails previously authorized for motorized use. It believes that these roads will adversely affect critical habitat for endangered Sierra Nevada bighorn sheep and the federally threatened Lahontan cutthroat trout. The case can be found on Pacer at 2:10-cv-02830 in the Eastern District of California.
