Supreme Court rules unanimously against EPA in enforcement case

The Supreme Court handed a decisive loss to U.S. EPA today when it ruled unanimously that property owners facing potential enforcement actions under the Clean Water Act can seek judicial review before being forced to comply. The justices held that Mike and Chantell Sackett of Priest Lake, Idaho, can challenge an EPA compliance order that claims they are in violation of the statute because they filled in wetlands on their land without obtaining a permit.
