By Judge Wanger deems salmon TRO and prelim. injunction motions to have been withdrawn

Author: Brandon Middleton

There will no injunction issued in the immediate future in the salmon biological opinion litigation.  Judge Wanger issued the following order this afternoon:

Based on the parties’ filings related to the Bureau of Reclamation’s projection that, due to hydrologic conditions, Action IV.2.1 will not control operations this water year, all moving parties agree that the pending motions for temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction, Docs. 538 & 590, and related motion to strike, Doc. 559, are moot. See Docs. 617 & 619-624. Those motions have been WITHDRAWN WITHOUT PREJUDICE. If Reclamation’s projections change, Plaintiffs may renew the motions for injunctive relief on shortened time.

SO ORDERED
Dated: March 30, 2011

/s/ Oliver W. Wanger
United States District Judge
