Judge Rules in Favor of Whales

A judge in California ruled against the U.S. Navy and for the whales today. The ruling requires the navy to shut down sonar withing 2,200 yards of whales and within 12 miles of the U.S. shore. It's just a preliminary injunction but it paves the way for further naval warfare restrictions. AP Story here.

Hopefully, it's a temporary setback, as it states in the AP story.
