FEDERAL COURTS RENDER OPINIONS ON THE "MEGA" ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT LITIGATION
Source: CropLife America statement

We are pleased that the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals has upheld the lower court's ruling that this lawsuit was a challenge to pesticide registrations and should be treated as such by the courts.

Through the national pesticide regulatory statute, Congress recognized the needs of growers and the regulated community for certainty in the availability of products that are necessary and vital to the U.S. food system.

Here, the court of appeals has acknowledged the importance of those protections.

Unfortunately, today's decision still leaves unresolved the full conflict between the ESA and the pesticide registration law (FIFRA). CropLife America (CLA) remains committed to pursuit of that satisfactory resolution.
