U.S. v. Tonawanda Coke Corp.

<> U.S. v. Tonawanda Coke Corp. - 1/11/16. In the U.S. Court of Appeals, Second Circuit, Case No. 14-1091. Summary Order. Rulings by summary order do not have precedential effect. The company [TCC] appeals the District Court's March 26, 2014 judgment adjudicating it guilty of offenses under the Clean Air Act and the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA).
     The Panel rules, "We have reviewed all of TCC's arguments on appeal and find them to be without merit. We thus AFFIRM the March 26, 2014 judgment of the District Court." Also, the Panel said, "Finally, we reject TCC's argument that the District Court 'abused its discretion' in imposing, as a special condition of probation, a requirement that TCC fund (at a cost of $12,200,000) two evaluative studies designed to investigate the effects of its conduct on human health and the environment.
