La Union Del Pueblo Entero v. Fed. Emergency Mgmt. Agency, 09-40948

In a case involving the Federal Emergency Management Agency's (FEMA) administration of the home repair provisions of Section 408 of the Stafford Act, the district court's preliminary injunction requiring FEMA to publish standards that comply with 42 U.S.C. section 5174(j) is vacated where plaintiffs merely complained that the regulations lacked specificity, not that FEMA wholly abdicated its responsibility to promulgate regulations, or promulgated regulations that directly contravened the statutory language.
