Natural Resources Defense Council v. Johnson

ELR Citation: 37 ELR 20115
Nos. No. 06-5132, (D.C. Cir., 05/25/2007)

The court reversed a lower court's dismissal of an environmental group's Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) claim in a dispute over the registration of two pesticides containing atrazine. The lower court held that the group lacked standing. Contrary to the lower court's reasoning, however, the group need not file a formal Freedom of Information Act request before bringing an action seeking a remedy for alleged FACA violations, including violations of the statute's disclosure requirements.
