Proffitt v. Bristol, Township of

Citation: 14 ELR 20700
No. No. 83-5022, 22 ERC 1335/(E.D. Pa., 04/27/1984)

The court grants defendants' motion to dismiss for lack of subject matter jurisdiction, based on plaintiff's failure to allege that he gave the notice to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the defendants required by the citizen suit provisions of the Federal Water Pollution Control Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act. EPA's compliance order issued to defendants shortly before plaintiff filed the amended complaint provides an additional basis for the dismissal.
