3 filings offer previews of legal attack on EPA regs
Three groups of challengers to U.S. EPA's climate program have asked a federal court to place the agency's newly finalized greenhouse gas regulations on hold until the court makes a decision. As the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia prepares to consider claims about the legality of the agency's climate rules, plaintiffs are asking for a stay that would block the agency's first-ever greenhouse gas regulations from taking effect next year. The three motions, which were filed yesterday, offer a peek at legal arguments that the plaintiffs intend to put forward.
