Litigation challenging EPA administrative action

Consumer products manufacturer

Our attorneys successfully represented a major consumer products company in federal district and appellate courts in Washington, D.C.  The Company brought an action against the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency in federal district court challenging the manner in which the Agency was implementing its Risk Mitigation Decision for Ten Rodenticides ("RMD"). In a landmark decision that resolved an important issue that had remained unsettled for more than 30 years, the district court held that EPA may not bring an enforcement action in lieu of the administrative cancellation procedures set forth in FIFRA Section 6.
