EPA Lawsuit

November 21, 2014:  SLF filed a response brief in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia challenging the EPA's assertion that it can continue to use greenhouse gas emissions standards that were successfully challenged in the U.S. Supreme Court in 2014.  In the blockbuster decision in which SLF represented dozens of challengers to the EPA rules, the Court held that EPA violated constitutional separation of powers by redrafting entire sections of the Clean Air Act unilaterally without Congressional authorization.  Now, EPA asserts that those same standards should continue to be used, forcing millions of American citizens and businesses under an illegal permitting process.  SLF and other parties are challenging the assertion, as the DC Court considers how best to implement the Supreme Court decision, which was handed down in June 2014.
