Back in February I wrote a comprehensive review of Compliance, Safety, Accountability (“CSA”), the safety compliance monitoring program administered by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (“FMCSA”). Since then I have written three articles updating the constantly changing CSA landscape. My most recent CSA update was published in the July, 2012 edition of The Transportation Lawyer, a quarterly legal journal by the Transportation Lawyers of America, entitled “Recent Developments Show CSA Continues to be a Work in Progress”. At the conclusion of that latest article I said, that “[t]he implementation of CSA will be ongoing for the near future … The process has already been much slower than many would like, has not been without controversy and will likely generate new controversy. Stay tuned!” It did not take long before the filing of two major lawsuits and other developments called for yet another update article. CSA continues to be a controversial work in progress and this article summarizes the two new lawsuits and the other controversies that have recently arisen over CSA and the related Pre-Employment Screening Program (PSP).
