Jurisdiction Lacking For Claim Related To EPA Pesticide Probe, 9th Circuit Says
(May 16, 2016, 9:37 AM EDT) -- SAN FRANCISCO — A panel of the Ninth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals on May 11 ruled that it lacked subject matter jurisdiction to hear a case alleging that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency failed to properly investigate methyl bromide exposure before reaching a settlement with a California state agency that had authorized the use of the pesticide in a residential area (Maria Garcia v. Gina McCarthy, No. 14-15494, 9th Cir.; 2016 U.S. App. LEXIS 8668).
