Endangered Species

NAHB attorney Desiderio discusses oral arguments in Supreme Court ESA case

For the first time in over a decade, the Supreme Court will hear an Endangered Species Act case this week. At issue in National Association of Homebuilders v. Defenders of Wildlife and U.S. EPA v. Defenders of Wildlife is whether the Endangered Species Act can be overridden by other federal laws. During today's OnPoint, Duane Desiderio, an attorney for the National Association of Homebuilders, discusses the details of the case and talks about what he expects from the court when the case is argued. Desiderio outlines the possible rulings that the court could hand down and explains why he believes the environmentalists' argument is not valid.
