Appeals Court reverses decision on preliminary injunction
March 20, 2009
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit today, March 20, issued a ruling, reversing and remanding for further proceedings the District Court's decision on a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit filed by the American Trucking Associations, seeking to block the Port of Long Beach and Port of Los Angeles concession requirements in their Clean Truck Programs.
"The decision today does not change the legal status of our Clean Trucks Program or any other requirements currently in effect at the Port," said Richard D. Steinke, executive director of the Port of Long Beach. "The Port will continue to study the decision and appropriate next steps of the Court of Appeals, and anticipates that further proceedings will be held promptly before the District Court."
