Turlock Irrigation District v. FERC

<> Turlock Irrigation District v. FERC - 5/15/15. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 13-1250 & 1253 Turlock contends that the Project does not fall within FERC's licensing jurisdiction. Conversely the Tuolumne River Trust and other conservation groups said FERC erred by not finding that it had licensing jurisdiction for four reasons instead of three determined by FERC.
     The Appeals Court  concludes that FERC's jurisdictional determinations were supported by substantial evidence and deny the Districts' petition for review. We dismiss the Trust's petition as it raises no justiciable case or controversy.
