    The Supreme Court will soon decide the fate of policies on climate change, health insurance subsidies, and other critical issues that test the limits of federal government regulation. How is the Court likely to rule on these issues? And what is unique about litigating cases before the Supreme Court? Sean Donahue and Peter Keisler are frequent adversaries in the Supreme Court, regularly representing opposing sides in environmental cases. Caitlin Halligan, former Solicitor General of the State of New York, is a prominent legal expert who has argued numerous cases involving a broad set of federal regulatory programs. The panelists will discuss their past experiences and speculate about the Court’s future direction.

    Regulating Climate Change

    The Frank J. Guarini Center on Environmental and Land Use Law brought together a panel of experts to discuss the October 15th Supreme Court decision to review only a narrow issue in an expansive DC Circuit Court decision on greenhouse gas regulation. The group examined the implications of the decision and the general consensus view that it will have little effect on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) authority to regulate climate-altering pollution from both stationary and mobile sources. Also to be discussed are the real-world consequences for greenhouse gas controls, and—in leaving EPA’s endangerment finding in place—the ability for the EPA to proceed with its ambitious program for controlling greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act.
