State of West Virginia, et al. v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, et al. and Chickaloon Village Traditional Council, et al.
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Eighth Circuit issued an order holding in abeyance the U.S. government’s appeal of the U.S. District Court for the District of North Dakota’s order granting a preliminary injunction against the Environmental Protection Agency’s final rule defining “waters of the United States” (WOTUS). The order comes after the EPA’s announcement that it would be revising the WOTUS regulations to comply with a recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling limiting the EPA’s ability to regulate wetlands under the Clean Water Act.
