Subject: [CPEO-BIF] CTS Asheville (North Carolina) loses fight against listing
Court rejects company's attempt to avoid EPA cleanup

Federal judges today rejected an electronic component maker's effort to remove its controversial former North Carolina manufacturing facility from U.S. EPA's Superfund cleanup program.

In a sharply worded 23-page opinion, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit deconstructed CTS Corp.'s challenges to EPA's 2011 decision to add the company's former Asheville property to the National Priorities List.

Judge Patricia Millett, a recent Obama appointee to the court, said each of the Elkhart, Ind.-based company's objections to EPA's inclusion of contamination at three wells near the property is "without merit."
