The Sacramento Bee lost its effort to keep legal documents from being sealed in lawsuits between the federal government and Sierra Pacific Industries (SPI), yet they won in a way, as well.

The legal maneuverings and mountains of paperwork between Sacramento and Plumas County are similar to a Rube Goldberg-style contraption.
