"RUGGED JUSTICE" follows Washington State's Department of Fish and Wildlife Law Enforcement Program as they police the Evergreen State's unforgiving mountain terrains, twisted rainforest back roads and densely populated coastal areas. In the six-episode series, viewers follow the WDFW Police Officers as they patrol more than 42 million acres of rugged terrain, half of it heavily forested and filled with wild animals, and often dangerous people. The department's dispatchers relay more 225,000 calls annually. Each day brings new challenges and extreme danger. Whether busting poachers along the USA-Canada border, going undercover to take down traffickers in the illegal animal parts trade, or tracking and capturing bears and cougars with the one-of-a-kind Karelian Bear-Dog Unit, the officers of RUGGED JUSTICE risk life and limb to protect natural resources and serve the people of Washington.

The court's regular meeting places are Seattle at the William Kenzo Nakamura United States Courthouse, Portland at the Pioneer Courthouse, San Francisco at the James R. Browning U.S. Court of Appeals Building, and Pasadena at the Richard H. Chambers U.S. Court of Appeals. Panels of the court occasionally travel to hear cases in other locations within the circuit. Although the judges travel around the circuit, the court arranges its hearings so that cases from the northern region of the circuit are heard in Seattle or Portland, cases from southern California are heard in Pasadena, and cases from northern California, Nevada, Arizona, and Hawaii are heard in San Francisco. For lawyers who must come and present their cases to the court in person, this administrative grouping of cases helps to reduce the time and cost of travel.
