Chemical Producers & Distribs. Ass'n v. Helliker

ELR Citation: 36 ELR 20185
Nos. No. 04-56318, (9th Cir., 08/31/2006)

The court dismisses as moot a chemical association's challenge to California's pesticide registration laws. The association claimed that the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act preempts the state registration laws, but the lower court disagreed. While the association's appeal of that decision was pending, California enacted amendments to its pesticide registration laws that rendered the claim moot. The court, therefore, vacates the lower court decision and orders the case to be dismissed as moot.
