Tear 'em down, he says in interview to be aired on Idaho Public TV
Retired federal judge James A. Redden, revered and reviled in the Pacific Northwest for his rulings on Columbia River dam operations, has told an interviewer for Idaho Public Television that the four Snake River dams should come down.
Said the former chief judge of the U.S. District Court in Oregon:
“I think we need to take those dams down … And I’ve never ordered them you know - or tried to order them that you’ve gotta take those dams down. But I have urged them to do some work on those dams…and they have.”
