Last year’s decision to remove the gray wolf from Oregon’s endangered species list was upheld in state law Tuesday with Gov. Kate Brown‘s signature — likely blocking an environmentalist lawsuit from moving forward.

In November, the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission decided gray wolf numbers had climbed enough to justify delisting under its management plan, which is undergoing revision starting Friday.

Environmentalists, arguing the commission’s scientific evidence was flawed, filed a lawsuit in December seeking to challenge the merits of that delisting decision through judicial review.
