Endangered Species Act lawsuit dismissed
Since the lawsuit was filed on Jan. 20, 2011, the plaintiffs and defendants have engaged in almost two years of settlement talks. CLA was granted limited intervenor status in June 2011. CLA’s motion to dismiss claimed that plaintiffs’ complaint did not provide enough specificity regarding what actions EPA did or did not take, triggering the need for ESA consultations. The motion to dismiss also argued that the complaint was submitted in the wrong court and outside the statutory deadline established for challenging a pesticide registration decision under FIFRA.
Vroom added that the dismissal provides an opportunity to renew discussions on the role of modern farming technologies in endangered species protection. “This next chapter should look holistically at the entirety of modern agriculture and examine how our nation’s farming systems continue to evolve and improve to benefit all wildlife—including endangered species—and their habitats.”
Additional co-intervenors in the case include Mid America CropLife Association (MACA), Responsible Industry for a Sound Environment (RISE), Southern Crop Production Association (SCPA) and the Western Plant Health Association (WPHA). The American Chemistry Council (ACC), the American Farm Bureau Federation and Reckitt Benckiser, among others, are also intervenors in the case.
