FOREST SERVICE RELEASES ADDITIONAL DOCUMENTS IN RESPONSE TO STORY OF STUFF FOIA LAWSUIT
In 2015, Greenfire Law helped Story of Stuff administratively appeal the Forest Service's failure to release documents regarding Nestle's diversion of water from the San Bernardino National Forest as required by the Freedom of Information Act. Because the response following that appeal was still insufficient, Greenfire Law sued on Story of Stuff's behalf. In April 2016, an additional 1200 documents, initially withheld, were released to Story of Stuff. These newly released documents are directly on issue regarding the Forest Service's mismanagement of Nestle's special use permit on the San Bernardino National Forest. Story of Stuff and Courage Campaign plan to use these documents to educate the public regarding the impacts of water diversion to our public lands.
