Golden Gate University Law Review


This Comment will demonstrate how to petition federal agencies, how administrative petitioning has been used to resolve women's health care problems and how it may be used to work on other women's health issues. The Petition to Alleviate Domestic Infant Formula Misuse and Provide Informed Infant Feeding Choice will serve as a case study for the petitioning process. Additionally, this Comment will explore the legal remedies petitioners have under the Administrative Procedure Act when federal agencies fail to act on a petition, as well as discuss the extent to which courts will order agencies to act responsibly.
