Greenwire's Bravender talks SCOTUS stay request, timeline for suit

This month, legal action on U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan heated up with a decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit to deny a request for a stay of the rule and a subsequent request filed with the Supreme Court to weigh in on the stay.

She also weighs in on the role politics are playing in the court filings.
