Most enviro cases legit

  In response to your article "Judge orders litigating enviros to pony up," do you ever fact-check for ridiculous statements like Engstedt’s — "Ninety-eight percent of these cases are not legitimate" (HCN, 2/6/06: Judge orders litigating enviros to pony up)? In truth, I’ve been the lawyer bringing these cases for Alliance for the Wild Rockies, The Ecology Center, Inc., and Native Ecosystems Council for the past four years, full time, and in that time we’ve lost one case. My success rate against the Forest Service over the past eight years is 90 percent.
