September 19, 2014 – Today’s appeals court decision in a lawsuit Boeing filed back in 2009 will not affect the cleanup of the former reactor and rocket testing facility near Simi Valley, cleanup groups said.

“The court decision has little practical effect, since a year after Boeing filed this suit, the Department of Energy (DOE) and NASA entered into legally binding cleanup agreements with California that are unaffected by the ruling,” said Denise Duffield, Associate Director of Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles. “Additionally, California has authority under other, older laws unchallenged in this case to order Boeing to clean up its part of the property to the strictest standards.”
