Jenny Harbine, Staff Attorney, Earthjustice: “Our legal system remains an important backstop against the abuses of power we’ve witnessed over the course of the past two months.”
Patti Goldman, Managing Attorney at Earthjustice: “We have a law that requires the E.P.A. to ban pesticides that it cannot determine are safe, and the E.P.A. has repeatedly said this pesticide is not safe.”
Lisa Garcia, VP of Litigation for Healthy Communities, Earthjustice: “They [the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency] are the watchdog. You can argue that they weren’t the best at it, but even a bad watchdog is better than no watchdog.”
