I suspect that spirotetramat is less harmful than some of the alternatives out on the market right now. The EPA has had a goal of replacing classes of chemicals with newer classes that have shown fewer toxicity problems in the environment.

Having stated that, if the Xerces Society is one of the parties filing the suit, I would guess that some more work needs to be done before completing the registration of the chemical.
