Health and Environment Groups File Lawsuit Over Clean Air Plan for Los Angeles Area
On Friday, four health and environmental groups filed a lawsuit asking the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reject the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's approval of a clean air plan for the Los Angeles area. The lawsuit -- which was filed by the Sierra Club, Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles, the Natural Resources Defense Council and Communities for a Better Environment -- alleges that the plan allows polluters to avoid regulations and forces Los Angeles residents to breathe smoggy air.
