Our team represented Weyerhaeuser Company in an environmental law case defending against a claim that it had "taken' northern spotted owls in violation of Section 9 of the Endangered Species Act in the management of its forests.
We successfully represented the Washington Forest Protection Association as Intervenor-Respondent in defending a suit challenging essentially all of the substantive forest practices rules on the grounds that they did not adequately respond to new scientific information about endangered species. The suit was dismissed based on our motion.
We represented the City of Bellevue in claims by landowners at the base of Coal Creek that the City had violated the Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act and committed nuisance and trespass as a result of sedimentation caused by the combination of urban storm water and historic coal mining along Coal Creek.
