Board of Supervisors v. McLucas

Citation: 6 ELR 20266
No. No. 76-0139, 410 F. Supp. 1052/8 ERC 1768/(D.D.C., 03/12/1976)

This action seeks to enjoin defendants from authorizing the Concorde SST to land in the United States until SST noise regulations are promulgated under the Federal Aviation Act, as amended by the Noise Control Act of 1972. The Secretary of Transportation's decision to admit the Concorde is an "order" within the Federal Aviation Act; as such, it is reviewable exclusively in the court of appeals. Therefore, this action must be dismissed for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.

For summaries of moving papers and other documents in this case, see ELR 65267; 65279; and 65289.
