A federal court ruling on the Port of Los Angeles' clean trucks plan will not significantly affect a lower court ruling that halts the port from implementing of the port's concession requirements, according to American Trucking Associations.
A panel of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled on Wednesday to allow the port to continue to enforce certain motor vehicle safety-related provisions contained in its concession plans. The ruling did not change a previous court decision to allow owner-operators to continue operating at the port.
The court agreed with the ATA that the port should not require drayage trucks to display information on placards other than Department of Transportation requirements. ATA spokesman Clayton Boyce said the ruling was "not significant. It doesn't change the status quo at all."
