Beveridge & Diamond Ninth Circuit Win Featured in Westlaw Journal

Beveridge & Diamond, P.C., October 28, 2011

Westlaw Journal Environmental's current issue covers Beveridge & Diamond's recent win for California solid waste and recycling companies, securing a unanimous decision from a Ninth Circuit panel reversing a district court decision that Younger abstention required dismissal of a Commerce Clause challenge to a local voter initiative. The Court of Appeals held that a pending mandamus action in state court that sought to enforce the voter initiative was not a state interest that warranted a federal court abstaining from hearing a challenge to the voter initiative. Potrero Hills Landfill et al. v. Solano County, ___ F.3d ___,  2011 U.S. App. LEXIS 18866 (9th Cir. Sept. 13, 2011).  Litigator Jimmy Slaughter from  Beveridge & Diamond's Washington office argued the case, and represents the waste companies along with Lily Chinn and Gary Smith from the Firm's California office.  To read the article, please click here
