ARSA, Litigants File Brief in D&A Lawsuit
October 13, 2006
ARSA and the other litigants in the Drug & Alcohol lawsuit against the FAA submitted their joint brief yesterday to the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Washington D.C.
The brief emphasized the unnecessary and costly nature of the FAA’s new testing rule. The litigants asked the Court to overturn the rule or alternatively, to force the FAA to consider its effects on small businesses before continuing to enforce the rule.
The FAA has until late January 2007 to file their brief, and the litigants will file a reply in February. The litigants hope that the case will be heard in late Spring 2007.
