MS Comm. Environ. Quality v. EPA

<> MS Comm. Environ. Quality v. EPA - In the U.S. Court of Appeals, D.C. Circuit, Case No. 12-1309 (consolidated with a number of cases). In these consolidated petitions, several states, counties, industrial entities and environmental organizations challenge the EPA's determination that certain geographic areas are, or are not, in "attainment" with the EPA's ground-level ozone NAAQS.
     The Appeals Court ruled, ". . .because the EPA complied with the Constitution, reasonably interpreted the Act's critical terms and wholly satisfied—indeed, in most instances, surpassed—its obligation to engage in reasoned decision-making, we deny the consolidated petitions for review in their entirety."
