Multi-County Logging Lawsuit Seeks Billions Against State Of Oregon
A trial that begins today has the potential to be one of the more flashy cases to involve a logging dispute. The case pits 14 westside counties – including Lane, Benton, Douglas, Linn and Lincoln Counties - against the state. It’s “flashy” because those counties are seeking $1.4 billion in damages for a lack of logging revenue from publicly owned forests.
KLCC's Brian Bull talked to Jes Burns of OPB’s Science and Environment team about the case.
