Michael Dillon Hockley

Case Conclusion Date:January 1, 2001

Practice Area:Environmental / Natural Resources

Outcome:The Court vacated the rule as to utilities in Western Missouri and two other partial states who joined in our brief.

Description:Represented a group of Western Missouri Utilities challenging EPA NOx SIP Call requiring power plants in 22 states and the District of Columbia to install billions of dollars of environmental controls. We argued that the data supported this regulation only for the Eastern portion of Missouri and should be vacated as to Western Missouri ("partial state" argument).
