Update from court today about restoration of grazing permits.
After hours of testimony, a federal judge in Portland extended a temporary restraining order as he considers whether or not to prevent a controversial Harney County ranching family from grazing their cattle on certain parcels of public land in southeast Oregon.

On Friday, U.S. District Court Judge Michael Simon granted the extension to allow for more evidence. After that, he said he would rule on whether to not to grant a preliminary injunction, a more permanent decision that would stay in place until the case is resolved.

In May, a trio of environmental groups sued the Bureau of Land Management. They’re trying to prevent the federal government from allowing the Hammond family from grazing cattle on what the environmental groups argue is sensitive lands for sage grouse and redband trout. :snippity:

Environmental advocacy groups urge federal judge to revoke grazing permit for Hammond Ranches Inc.

https://www.oregonlive.com/business/201 ... s-inc.html
Three environmental advocacy groups Thursday urged a federal judge to immediately revoke the grazing permit for Hammond Ranches Inc. that former Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke authorized earlier this year.

Attorney David Becker said Zinke acted as if he was “above the law’’ by failing to consider the Hammonds’ unsatisfactory record or do proper environmental reviews before ordering the renewal of the grazing permit in February.

:snippity:

Western Watersheds Project, the Center for Biological Diversity and WildEarth Guardians sued the interior secretary and the Bureau of Land Management, arguing that the renewal of the permit was unlawful.

Simon made a preliminary finding this past summer that the environmental groups were likely to succeed in proving that Zinke’s action was “arbitrary and capricious’’ and placed limits on the Hammond Ranch grazing.
