CASE ENTRY

American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers v. O’Keeffe

To fight climate change, Oregon imposes a system of carbon-credit trading for fuels. Plaintiffs: Which discriminates against out-of-state fuels and overrides an EPA rule. The Ninth Circuit (over a dissent): Not so. It’s permissible environmental protection, and we’ve upheld a near-identical system in California. This one’s fine too.
