The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit has denied ARSA’s request to extend the FAA’s new drug and alcohol (D&A) testing program rule’s compliance date. The denial means that, per the court’s interim order issued October 11, the D&A rule’s compliance date is October 20.
While ARSA is disappointed in the Court’s decision, the Association is not surprised, as such “motions for stay” are rarely granted. However, ARSA and its legal team filed the motion in an effort to have the Association’s March 10, 2006, lawsuit against the rule decided before industry was required to comply with the regulation.
ARSA’s legal fight–specifically working diligently to win the March 10 lawsuit–against the unnecessary, burdensome D&A testing rule continues. The Association will keep its members informed of all new developments.
