Lawsuit filed over Secretary of State’s unprecedented rejection of Oregon forest ballot measures

Backers of spurned ballot measures to tighten Oregon’s forestry laws sued Monday, saying Oregon Secretary of State Bev Clarno broke with legal precedent and based her rejection on bad advice from political appointees.

The lawsuit, filed in Marion County Circuit Court, asks a judge to overturn the rejection and award attorneys’ fees.
