The Center for Biological Diversity and the Center for Food Safety are asking the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia to issue a writ of mandamus directing the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to comply with a 2017 court order requiring it to protect endangered species from the toxic insecticide cyantraniliprole. Documents obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests show the EPA has failed to comply with a 2017 court order requiring the agency to consult with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service to assess the harms associated with cyantraniliprole.
