State of Arizona v. Raytheon Co.
State of Arizona v. Raytheon Co. - 8/1/14. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Ninth Circuit, Case No. 12-15691. In a mixed, split decision, the panel affirmed in part and reversed in part the district court's order approving consent decrees in an action under CERCLA. In part the Panel reaffirm that a district court has an "obligation to independently scrutinize the terms of [such agreements]," by, inter alia, comparing "the proportion of total projected costs to be paid by the [settling parties] with the proportion of liability attributable to them."
