Utah v. Environmental Protection Agency, No. 13-9535 (10th Cir. 2014)Annotate this Case
This case stemmed from the Clean Air Act, which requires states to adopt programs that will reduce emission of air pollutants that affect visibility. The State of Utah submitted a revised plan to the Environmental Protection Agency. The agency partially rejected the plan, and the State and one of the affected companies (PacifiCorp) filed petitions for review. Though all parties agree that the Tenth Circuit had jurisdiction over this case, the Court disagreed and dismissed their petitions.
The court issued a subsequent related opinion or order on September 3, 2014.
