Appeals & Litigation


This site contains information about the Forest Service's environmental appeals and litigation. An appeal is a formal request to a higher agency authority for review of an environmental decision. The public's rights and responsibilities to file an appeal are defined in specific appeal regulations. Usually, all administrative processes must be exhausted before a person can bring a court action (litigation) associated with an environmental planning decision.
