Industry Task Force for DDT v. Department of Natural Resources

Citation: 2 ELR 20002
No. No. 132-078, 3 ERC 1612/(Wis. Cir. Ct., 11/04/1971)

Association of DDT manufacturers do not have standing to challenge a ruling by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources that DDT is an environmental pollutant because the Wisconsin statute which prohibits the sale or use of the pesticide in the state eliminates their interest in the administrative decision. The fact that the ruling impedes plaintiff's opposition to anti-DDT policy decisions in other states is of no consequence in determining their standing because this grievance is not a direct result of the administrative decision.
