As US EPA Coronavirus Deregulation Is Sued SDNY Litigants Leave It To The Papers

By Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon
BBC - Guardian UK - Honduras - The Source

SDNY COURTHOUSE, May 6 – The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on March 26, citing the Coronavirus pandemic, allowed companies to move to only internal monitoring of noncompliance with regulations and tell EPA about it later, only if asked.

  Environmental groups on April 1 filed an emergency petition for rulemaking with EPA, opposing this.

After EPA inaction, they have sued in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, whose Chief Judge Colleen McMahon held a conference on the case on May 6. Inner City Press covered it.

   Judge McMahon invited plaintiffs to use the opportunity to describe their case; they said they preferred to stand on their papers. Perhaps journalists in the environmental field prefer to simply read.

In the docket now are Catskill Mountainkeeper, Center for Coalfield Justice, Clean Water Action, Coming Clean, Environmental Justice Health Alliance, Flint Rising, Indigenous Environmental Network, Just Transition Alliance, Los Jardines Institute, Natural Resources Defense Council, Public Citizen, Southeast Environmental Task Force, Texas Environmental Justice Advocacy Services, West Harlem Environmental Action, Inc., Water You Fighting For.   Judge McMahon said while she was not scheduling oral argument, she may pose questions to the side by filing them in the docket. Inner City Press will be monitoring it.

The case is NRDC et al. v. Assistant Administrator Susan Parker Bodine, et al., 20-cv-3058 (McMahon).
