The Supreme Court ruled unanimously that property owners have a right to prompt review by a judge of an important tool used by the Environmental Protection Agency to address water pollution.
Mike and Chantell Sackett are still waiting to be heard by the Environmental Protection Agency, but now they've got a hearing before the U.S. Supreme Court.
"This is a great day for Mike and Chantell Sackett, because it confirms that EPA can't deny them access to justice," said the foundation's principal attorney, Damien Schiff, who represented the couple in court. "EPA can't repeal the Sacketts' fundamental right to their day in court."
The Supreme Court's ruling makes it clear that "EPA bureaucrats are answerable to the law and the courts just like the rest of us," Mr. Schiff said in a statement.
