WildEarth Guardians v. U.S. EPA

WildEarth Guardians v. U.S. EPA - 7/23/14. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit, Case No. 13-9524. WildEarth Guardians filed a petition for review of the Federal Implementation Plan (FIP) to reduce regional haze from the Four Corners Power Plant on the Navajo Reservation in northwestern New Mexico; saying EPA did not consult with the Fish and Wildlife Service as required under the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The Panel denied the petition saying it could not create a duty to consult under the ESA because it would have required the EPA to exceed the clearly delineated boundaries of the FIP.
