SALMON PATTI

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - A federal appeals court has blocked the harvest of thousands of acres of old-growth forest in Oregon, ruling the federal government did not adequately address the plight of protected salmon.

The sweeping decision Thursday by a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals also may halt proposed logging of hundreds of thousands of acres throughout California, Oregon and Washington state - all idled pending the ruling.

"This is a victory for salmon," said Patti Goldman of the Earthjustice Legal Defense Fund, which sued the government on behalf of environmental groups.
