Getting Results – Prevailing against the regulators

JMBM lawyers, acting on behalf of the California Mining Association, filed suit against the South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) challenging its adoption of a new regulation. As part of the settlement we achieved for our client, the SCAQMD was required to amend the regulation and allow a high wind exemption critical to CMA members and large construction projects throughout Southern California. The change allows facilities to load and transport materials to job sites during rare high wind events, as long as all other production operations cease and required dust controls are in place.
