Motion to stay Clean Power Plan denied

January 21, 2016

On Thursday, Jan. 21, 2016, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit denied a request by 150 parties, including 27 states, to stay implementation of the Obama Administration's controversial climate change regulation known as the Clean Power Plan. The Court determined that the petitioners had failed to meet the stringent standard for a stay of the Clean Power Plan, which was promulgated on Aug. 3, 2015, and requires states to submit implementation plans by Sept. 6, 2016. However, the Court did agree to an expedited briefing schedule on the merits with Oral Argument scheduled for June 2, 2016.
