Summary – City of Los Angeles and Culver City v. Stephen Dickson, et al. (July 8, 2021)

Posted on July 23, 2021


Summary of a legal case study related to FAA procedures

The cities of Los Angeles and Culver City filed a petition for review of the FAA’s action with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals contending that the FAA failed to conduct proper environmental review for the amendments to three arrival procedures prior to their adoption as required under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). Specifically the FAA’s published amendments to the HUULL TWO, IRNMAN TWO, and RYDRR TWO RNAV STARs serving LAX. These procedures are referred to as the “North Downwind” arrival procedures.
