Did Downes finally turn down Gordon's Lawsuit? Doubtful.
There is an Associated Press article in many newspapers indicating that Judge William Downes finally ruled against Steve Gordon's lawsuit on the wolves, but the article added cryptically "But U.S. District Judge William Downes said he will reconsider an earlier decision allowing transplanted wolves to remain in the Dubois area until appeals are settled on the legality of their reintroduction from Canada."
There was something odd about the article, and that is why I haven't posted it until now. As far as I can determine from calling and emailing people, the entire story is questionable. It may just be some old story that was accidentally rewritten and put on the "AP wire."
