Kudos to that judge giving them a proverbial kick up the backside. They might do something now knowing there will be consequences if they don't.

"...the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service faces a 30-day deadline to submit a schedule for recovery planning.
U.S. District Court Judge Donald Molloy ruled that he will hold the agency accountable for finishing the job that was started in 2000 when biologists decided the cats were so rare they needed protection under the Endangered Species Act. "

Good on judge Molloy! But this makes me wonder, who got to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to compel them to drag their feet for 12 years? The lynx deserve so much better than the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have failed to provide.
