The Natural Resources Defense Council, which sided with EPA in this case, said the decision was relatively narrow. The court “did not open the Clean Water Act up to abuse by polluters by gutting EPA’s ability to issue these orders. And it didn’t question their validity,” said Jon Devine, a senior attorney at NRDC.
The case is Sackett v. EPA, 10-1062.
