Former DOJ official Lorenzen talks Gorsuch, future of environmental law and Chevron

Following President Trump's nomination this week of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, how might Gorsuch shape the future of environment and energy cases before the court? During today's OnPoint, Thomas Lorenzen, a partner at Crowell & Moring and a former assistant chief in the Environment and Natural Resources Division at the Department of Justice, explains how Gorsuch could compare to the late Justice Antonin Scalia in his interpretation of the law. Lorenzen, who has opposed U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan on behalf of electric cooperatives, also talks about Gorsuch's record on energy and environment cases.
