Docket No. Op. Below Argument Opinion Vote Author Term
12-1167 D.C. Cir. N/A N/A N/A N/A OT 2012

Issue: (1) Whether engine manufacturers have standing under Article III because they demonstrated that the Clean Air Act's waiver for the fuel additive "E15" (15% ethanol/85% gasoline) will cause them injury in fact; (2) whether prudential standing is non-jurisdictional and therefore can be waived by a government agency’s (here, EPA’s) failure to raise it; and (3) whether, in assessing a regulated entity’s Article III standing to challenge regulatory action, an apparent “option” to comply with a statutory scheme should be viewed as coercive if use of the “option” is practically required.
