CCTA (CDTOA) v. CARB & EPA – Lawsuit Updates (6-14)

The CCTA appeal of Judge England’s ruling is still pending in the Ninth Circuit Court. Briefing on that case was completed in August, 2013, so it has been pending for about 10 months.

This is not particularly unusual; our counsel has seen cases pend for close to two years. In one recent F4A case they handled for the towing industry, the case was in the Ninth Circuit for 18 months before an opinion was issued. In any event, there are no statutes or rules governing the time in which the court must decide a case.

The next step will be for the court to schedule oral arguments.
