J. Christensen finds in partial favor of the Forest Service Employees for Environmental Ethics’ in their lawsuit against the U.S. Forest Service for discharging aerially deployed fire retardant, on nearly 500 occasions between 2012 and 2019, into U.S. waters without a permit. The Forest Service is not enjoined from using aerial deployment of fire retardant to fight wildfires, but its discharges are still in violation of the Clean Water Act. The Forest Service is ordered to update the court every six months as it works towards obtaining the proper permit.
