On October 3, 2011, a federal court in San Francisco granted the parties’ motion to stay an ESA pesticides case until November 18, 2011.  The purpose of the stay is to allow the parties more time to try to settle the case. There is a court status conference on the case scheduled for November 18, 2011.  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 Stay Motion and Order is attached below.
