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.
