Targeting those too small to fight back

We've all read about the closures of private inns, campgrounds, and other businesses operating of federal lands.

But according to an entry at Coyote Blog, the closings aren't universal:
Large corporations that run ski resorts and certain other large resort properties on National Forest lands have been exempted.  It should be noted that ski resorts operators, unlike campground operators, have full-time lobbyists stationed in Washington and can afford in-house staff lawyers to fight these kinds of orders.  My guess is that knowing they would immediately get sued if they ordered larger private firms to close, the USFS focused only on smaller and more helpless private firms.
Obama's America. Operating in true bully fashion, it only picks on those too small to fight back.
