US EPA seeks dismissal of chlorpyrifos suit

The US EPA has called on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to dismiss the bid by a coalition of US environmentalist advocacy groups to force it to ban the insecticide, chlorpyrifos. The coalition, including Pesticide Action Network North America and the Natural Resources Defense Council, filed suit in September last year seeking a ban on chlorpyrifos and a revocation of all food tolerances for the insecticide. That was their third bid to force the Agency to ban the insecticide after filing a lawsuit in 2010 over its failure to respond to a 2007 petition seeking a ban.
