Oregon Appeals Court

     PROPERTY – Oregon denied Boise Cascade Corp.’s request to harvest timber where a pair of spotted owls were found, temporarily banned logging in the area and paid the company $25. A jury found that the state had illegally taken Boise Cascade’s property without just compensation and awarded the company $2 million. The Oregon Court of Appeals upheld a decision denying Boise Cascade’s motion to reinstate its state-law takings claim. See ruling.
