On August 22, 2019, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit granted permission to the City to intervene in the lawsuit brought in June 2019 by the City of Los Angeles, challenging changes made by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in three flight paths for arriving aircraft at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
The cities’ legal action charges that the newly implemented flight paths, while different from those already implemented as a result of the FAA NextGen process, were put in place without separate environmental review or the opportunity for public notice and comment.
Culver City will be joining Los Angeles and the FAA in court-ordered discussions with the goal of of resolving the issues in a manner acceptable to all parties.
