Appeals Court Overturns Jury Verdict

(Salem, OR) -- The Oregon Court of Appeals has overturned a verdict from a jury that awarded Oregon timber counties one-point-one billion dollars they claimed was owed due to lost logging revenue. The 13 counties argued the state needed to maximize timber sales on 700-thousand acres. In 1998, the Oregon Board of Forestry adopted a rule that the value of the forests meant balancing multiple uses, not just timber. Under the Court of Appeals decision, that rule now remains in place.
