Supreme Court to Hear Oral Arguments in April in ATA’s Appeal in Port of L.A. Case

The U.S. Supreme Court has scheduled oral arguments for April 16 in American Trucking Associations’ appeal over what ATA has called “burdensome” requirements the Port of Los Angeles has put on fleets serving the port.

A September 2011 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals struck down the port’s ban on owner-operators, but ruled the port was allowed to require drayage operators to submit off-street parking plans, properly maintain their trucks, post placards on permitted trucks and demonstrate financial responsibility as part of its overall Clean Trucks Plan.

ATA filed an appeal to the Supreme Court in December 2011 to challenge specific parts of the plan, saying they would lead to a patchwork of rules and regulations.
