Below you will find a series of PDF documents related to the Survey and Manage Mitigation Measure of the Northwest Forest Plan. The 2004 and 2007 documents are past analyses that were challenged in court and are no longer valid decisions. These documents are maintained here as historical information.

The 2011 Settlement Agreement was the result of litigation on the 2007 Records of Decision. On April 25, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit issued an Opinion that reversed the U.S. District Court Western District of Washington's order approving the Survey & Manage Settlement Agreement (Conservation Northwest, et al. v. Harris Sherman, et al., July 6, 2011 Order (W.D. Wash.)). The 9th Circuit remanded the case back to the district court for further remedy proceedings consistent with its Opinion. On June 19, 2013, the Ninth Circuit Court issued its formal mandate, such that their April 2013 ruling takes effect. The case was remanded back to the District Court and remedy is pending.
