Court Rejects Challenge to Waste Transfer Station Near LaGuardia Airport

On April 9, 2013, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit dismissed a challenge to an FAA letter to the City of New York concerning the planned waste transfer station near LaGuardia Airport.  In the letter, the FAA endorsed the findings of a blue-ribbon panel of experts and recommended that the City implement the panel’s recommendations for mitigating wildlife hazards associated with the transfer station.  The court held that the letter was not a reviewable final order and therefore, the court lacked jurisdiction to consider the petition for review.
