Timber industry suit against Obama expansion of Cascade–Siskiyou NMon goes to hearing

A timber industry lawsuit challenging the Obama administration’s expansion of the Cascade-Siskiyou National Monument will be heard by a federal judge in Medford on Tuesday.


The case, Murphy Company v. Trump, argues the former president did not have the authority to enlarge the monument because the expansion included Oregon and California Railroad Revested Lands, also known as the O&C Lands, that had already been designated for timber production.
