Linn County, Ore., is suing the state over how it manages Oregon Forest Trust Lands. The suit, filed on behalf of 15 counties that donated timber land to the state, seeks $1.4 billion in lost revenues.

ALBANY, Ore. — Linn County shouldn’t be allowed to represent other counties in a lawsuit seeking $1.4 billion from Oregon over its forest management practices, according to the state’s attorneys.

It’s also impractical for the case to proceed as a class action due to the different forest circumstances in each county, the state’s attorneys claimed during oral arguments Aug. 17 in Albany, Ore.
