On July 2, U.S. District Court Judge Sean McLaughlin held a hearing on how a lawsuit filed by the oil and gas industry against the U.S. Forest Service and three environmental groups should be resolved. The oil and gas industry sued the Forest Service and the three groups, Allegheny Defense Project, Forest Service Employees for Environmental Ethics, and Sierra Club, after the parties entered into a settlement agreement in 2009. That settlement simply required the Forest Service to comply with federal law by preparing an appropriate environmental analysis and allowing the public to comment before the Forest Service issues its "Notice to Proceed" to oil and gas companies for logging, road construction and drilling operations in the Allegheny National Forest.
