US v. Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer Dist., No. 08-3399

By FindLaw Staff on August 03, 2009 3:17 PM

In an enforcement action brought under the Clean Water Act, district court judgment is affirmed where the State of Missouri waived its sovereign immunity by choosing to proceed as a plaintiff in the Clean Water enforcement action, and thus the court did not err when it denied the state's motion to strike defendant's affirmative defenses and dismiss its counterclaims.
