Concerned Bend, Oregon MoveOn member Jerry Gilmour started a MoveOn Petition to the USFS demanding that a non-biased, accurate environmental impact statement be prepared and released to the public before the project could be implemented. U.S. District Court Judge Anne Aiken sided with Jerry and the more than 5,000 petition signers, finding that the USFS broke the law by planning to carry out the project without a detailed environmental impact statement, and bringing the Goose Project to a halt.
