(CN) – A federal court judge in Washington found President Barack Obama’s expansion of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument invalid on Tuesday, contradicting an earlier ruling by a federal judge in Oregon and setting the stage for a judicial showdown.

U.S. District Court Judge Richard Leon found Obama’s expansion of Cascade-Siskiyou to include 40,000 acres of “O&C Land” that must be managed for sustained timber harvest was invalid.
