"We have attempted to form meaningful partnerships with diverse interests, including the hunting and angling community.  Active, effective management should be our common goal, not courtroom posturing," said John Bongiovanni, a COHVCO Director.

The lawsuit is in its initial stages.  The Forest Service's answer is due on February 7, 2012.  The schedule for presenting the merits of the case has not yet been established.
