Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-760 D.C. Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: Whether the Environmental Protection Agency may establish a new National Ambient Air Quality Standard under the Clean Air Act based on a purely hypothetical threat to the public health, as the D.C.
