Navajo Nation v. United States Forest Service

The en banc panel of the 9th Circuit says that the use of treated sewage effluent on the San Fransisco Peaks does not violate the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, reversing the 9th Circuit’s original opinion. The case is 2 volumes long and contains a lengthy dissent. Analysis to follow.
