Harold Blinderman was quoted in the article, "'Vigorous Debate' Expected on Mercury Rule After High Court Ruling, EPA Attorney Says," in Bloomberg Law. In the article, Blinderman discusses how the future of the EPA's Mercury and Air Toxics Standards rests with the federal appeals court in light of the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on Monday. The Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that the EPA erred in crafting the standards because it did not properly consider costs during its rulemaking when determining whether it is "appropriate and necessary" to regulate hazardous air emissions from power plants under Section 112 of the Clean Air Act. The Supreme Court remanded the Standards to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals for further proceedings consistent with its opinion.
