On November 14, 2011, a federal court in San Francisco granted the parties’ motion to stay an ESA pesticides case until a status conference on February 10, 2012. The parties are ordered to file a status report by February 3, 2012. The purpose of the stay is to allow the parties more time to try to settle the case. This case involves the NGO plaintiffs’ allegations that EPA has violated the Endangered Species Act by failing to consult with NMFS and FWS on hundreds of pesticides.

The status report and court order are attached below.
