Court Has No Jurisdiction Over FIFRA Registration Process.

The plaintiffs challenged the registration by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of the pesticide cyantraniliprole (CTP).  The EPA approved the registration of CTP under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA)  for use on a wide variety of crops as well as for non-agricultural uses in early 2014.  The court held that it did not have jurisdiction to review the registration process because such jurisdiction was vested in the Circuit Courts under FIFRA under 7 U.S.C. Sec. 136n.  The court dismissed the case for lack of subject matter jurisdiction.  Center for Biological Diversity, et al. v. United States Environmental Protection Agency, et al., No. 14-942 (GK), 2015 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 63465 (D. D.C. May 14, 2015).
