US EPA asks court to dismiss neonicotinoid suit

The US EPA has asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit challenging the Agency’s approval of two neonicotinoid insecticides, arguing that the claims lack merit and should be thrown out on jurisdictional grounds. At issue is a suit brought in March by five environmental groups and several commercial beekeepers in the US District Court for the Northern District of California (Agrow No 661, p 16). The complaint seeks an injunction that would bar continued use of clothianidin and thiamethoxam.
