Clean Power Plan

NRDC's Doniger, Sidley Austin's Martella debate legal future of rule

What is the legal future of U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan, and how could the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit's pending ruling on the regulation impact future Clean Air Act cases and rulemakings coming out of EPA? During today's OnPoint, David Doniger, director of the Climate and Clean Air Program at the Natural Resources Defense Council, and Roger Martella, a partner at Sidley Austin, discuss the most contentious issues being considered by the D.C. Circuit following last week's oral arguments. They also debate the precedent that could be set by the outcome of the litigation.
