South Coast Air Quality Management District v. Chao
Filing Date Type File Action Taken Summary 11/14/2019 Complaint Download Complaint filed. Three California air quality management districts filed a complaint in federal district court in D.C. seeking a declaration that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration preemption rule is invalid. They also filed a related petition for review in the D.C. Circuit challenging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's withdrawal of California's waiver. The district court case was not officially consolidated with similar cases brought by California and other states and by environmental groups, but parties have been filing the same documents in each docket, and the documents can be found on the California case's page.
