The Ninth Circuit ordered an en banc rehearing of Navajo Nation v. US Forest Service. In March 2007, the Ninth Circuit ruled that the federal government’s plan to use treated sewage to make snow for a ski area in the San Francisco Peaks violated the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), 42 USC §§ 2000 et seq. Several tribes challenged the plan claiming that such actions degraded a sacred site.
