Climate attorney Glaser discusses arguments in AEP v. Connecticut

The Supreme Court tackled another major climate change case this week, this time seeking to determine whether states can regulate greenhouse gas emissions as a public nuisance under federal common law. During today's OnPoint, Peter Glaser, a partner at Troutman Sanders and chairman of the firm's climate change practice team, discusses the arguments in American Electric Power v. Connecticut. He explains how this case may affect future Clean Air Act and climate change litigation and gives his take on the justices' reactions during oral arguments.
