Supreme Court opens new term with murky wetlands dispute and Justice Jackson on the bench

Quick Summary

In the court’s term that ended in June, the justices issued a major ruling that limited the ability of the Environmental Protection Agency to tackle climate change by regulating carbon emissions under the Clean Air Act.

The first case concerned whether the Sacketts could challenge an EPA compliance order in court after they had filled the affected area with gravel and sand without obtaining a permit.

In court papers, Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar, representing the administration, said Kennedy's “significant nexus” test is preferable because it “covers those adjacent wetlands that significantly affect the chemical, physical and biological integrity of the nation’s traditional navigable waters.
