Scientist challenges composition of EPA advisory committees

Clients Young, Dr. S. Stanley

Jones Day represents Dr. S. Stanley Young, a scientist challenging the composition of two United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) advisory committees — the Science Advisory Board and the Clean Air Scientific Advisory Committee. The complaint argues that the EPA reconstituted the two advisory committees in violation of the Federal Advisory Committee Act and the Administrative Procedure Act because the committees are not fairly balanced or protected from inappropriate influence.
