James B. (Jimmy) Slaughter, co-counsel for the City of Los Angeles and other parties challenging a ban on recycling biosolids, is quoted in the June 2, 2010 issue of BNA Inc. Daily Environment Report.  The article, Supreme Court Denies Los Angeles Petition To Review Ban on Land Application of Sludge, discusses the next steps in the case after denial of the City's certiorari  petition, which sought Supreme Court review of a Ninth Circuit decision invalidating on standing grounds part of the City's win in the trial court.  The case now returns to federal district court in Los Angeles where the Firm's litigators will ask the court to exercise supplemental jurisdiction over the state law claims that the City prevailed on in 2007.
