Case Summary

On July 15, 2015, five non-profit organizations concerned with environmental justice filed this lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. Represented by Earthjustice, the plaintiffs sued under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). The plaintiffs claimed that the EPA violated the APA by failing to enforce Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000d et seq. (“Title VI”). (The plaintiff…

On July 15, 2015, five non-profit organizations concerned with environmental justice filed this lawsuit against the Environmental Protection Agency ("EPA") in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. Represented by Earthjustice, the plaintiffs sued under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA). The plaintiffs claimed that the EPA violated the APA by failing to enforce Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. § 2000d et seq. (“Title VI”). (The plaintiffs did not bring a Title VI claim.) They sought declaratory and injunctive relief along with attorneys' fees.

Specifically, the plaintiffs singled out five specific cases in which they said the EPA violated the APA by failing to issue preliminary findings in response to Title VI complaints they had filed between 1994 and 2003, alleging that environmental harm disproportionately affected people of color. The plaintiffs also claimed that the EPA's pattern and practice of failing to issue preliminary findings violated the APA. The plaintiffs sought a declaration that the EPA’s failure to meet its mandatory duty and comply with the deadline set forth in 40 C.F.R. § 7.115, which requires the EPA to issue preliminary findings and recommendations for voluntary compliance within 180 days of initiating its investigation into a Title VI complaint, constituted agency action “unlawfully withheld or unreasonably delayed” under the APA. The plaintiffs also sought an injunction compelling the EPA to issue preliminary findings and recommendations for voluntary compliance for the investigations into each of plaintiffs’ Title VI complaints within ninety days of this Court’s order and complete the complaint investigation procedures in response to each of plaintiffs’ Title VI complaints in compliance with the timelines set forth in the federal regulations.

The case was initially assigned to Magistrate Judge Kandis A. Westmore. On September 3, 2015, the case was reassigned to Judge Saundra Brown Armstrong.

On January 19, 2017, the plaintiffs filed an amended complaint but did not alter any of their claims or prayer for relief. The EPA filed a motion to dismiss and, in the alternative, a motion for summary judgment on January 26, 2017; the plaintiffs also filed a motion for summary judgment.

On March 30, 2018, Judge Armstrong ruled on the plaintiffs’ motion for summary judgment and the defendants’ motion to dismiss. The court found that the defendant had a mandatory duty to issue preliminary findings within 180 days after accepting a complaint for investigation, and that the defendant failed to comply with that duty. While declaratory relief was available to the plaintiffs, the court found that there could be no injunctive relief awarded with respect to the underlying Title VI complaints because the EPA's resolution of the claims mooted them. However, the court stated that it could issue a prospective injunction requiring the EPA to timely process the plaintiffs’ future Title VI complaints that it accepts for investigation. The court instructed the parties to meet and confer regarding the form of the proposed prospective relief and to submit a joint motion and proposed judgment. The joint motion was to note any disagreements between the parties for the court's consideration. 

Finally, as to the pattern or practice claim, the court found it not to be legally cognizable under the APA, and granted summary judgment on it in favor of the EPA. 2018 WL 1586211.

The plaintiffs filed a proposed judgment on April 13, 2018. The proposed judgment, among other things, directed the EPA to "timely process any pending and future Title VI complaints submitted by Plaintiffs and accepted for investigation by the EPA." The EPA lodged two objections: that it should only be required to timely process future complaints, and that the judgment should be in effect for only five years. On June 13, 2018, the court issued its judgment –– it kept the "pending and future" language, but appended a five-year limitation on the effect of the judgment. 

On July 11, 2018, the EPA filed a motion under FRCP 59(e) to amend the judgment in two ways. First, it requested the court delete the reference to timely process "future" complaints. As the court later noted, the EPA's motion took "the complete opposite position that it took in its letter brief" with respect to the present and future language. Second, the EPA moved to insert a provision to account for the fact that the EPA regulations allow the complaining and opposing party to extend the 180-day deadline for resolution if they agree to do so pending settlement negotiations. On the same day, Judge Armstrong referred the case to Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler for settlement conferences.

Due to budget constraints and appropriations withholdings by the federal government, the EPA filed a motion to stay proceedings on December 26, 2018, which Judge Beeler granted. Appropriations were restored on January 29, 2019, and the settlement conference, which had originally been scheduled for January 10, was rescheduled to April 9, 2019. While the parties had originally agreed to update the court by April 30 with the results of their settlement efforts, they were still unable to reach a consensus by May 17. In light of the parties’ continued inability to come to a settlement, the court invited both parties to respond to the defendants’ July 11 motion to alter judgment. After another extension of time, the parties completed briefing on August 14, 2019. 

On September 30, 2020, the court issued its order granting in part and denying in part the EPA's motion to amend the June 13, 2018 judgment. The question was whether the EPA's motion to amend the judgment complied with FRCP 59(e), which has been interpreted to give courts discretion to "deny a motion for reconsideration where the moving party had the opportunity but failed to raise [its] argument earlier." The court denied the EPA's request to delete the "future" language because it could have raised the issue in its letter motion accompanying the original proposed judgment. The court granted the EPA's motion with respect to the mutually-agreed extension provision because the plaintiffs did not oppose it. The court then issued an amended judgment on October 2, 2020. 

The parties appear to have privately settled the issue of attorney's fees; the parties stipulated they would negotiate fees on December 23, 2020, and the plaintiffs withdrew a motion for fees on August 13, 2021.  

Judgment is rendered in the case, and it will remain open until October 2, 2025 only to the extent that the court retains jurisdiction over the prospective injunction. For all other purposes, the case is closed.

ORDER RE SETTLEMENT CONFERENCE ATTENDANCE. The court just now received the plaintiffs' addendum dated March 21, 2016, about who should attend the settlement conference from the EPA. The court is not a fan of telephone participation and thinks (from prior and extensive settlement negotiations with the government) that in-person attendance is the key to negotiating injunctive relief. That said, the court trusts that all parties will ensure that all persons necessary for an effective settlement conference will attend the conference (even if by telephone or Skype) as opposed to being merely available by telephone. To facilitate participation, the parties should have separate conference call numbers available (and the court appreciates that at least some clients are attending via CourtCall). The court also reminds the parties that it has a previously scheduled matter from (likely) 11:15 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. Given that this is a negotiation, the parties should expect to continue their negotiation in the court's absence.
