Appeals Court Rules for Rodenticide Maker, Remands Dispute With EPA to District Court

Bergeson & Campbell, P.C.

The July 19, 2010, issue of BNA Daily Environment Report quotes Timothy D. Backstrom, one of the authors of a friend-of-the court brief in support of the manufacturer in Reckitt Benckiser Inc. v. EPA,. Backstrom described the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit’s opinion as “well-reasoned” and meant that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was not allowed to “coerce” Reckitt “by threatening a misbranding action.”
