The U.S. Court of Appeals denied Coalition for Responsible Growth and Resource Conservation v. FERC

On June 12, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit denied numerous environmental groups’ petitions for judicial review of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s (FERC) authorization of the MARC I natural gas pipeline. The court reasoned that the FERC environmental assessment thoroughly considered the possible effects of the pipeline project and concluded that it was correct to issue a no significant impact statement, making an environmental impact statement unnecessary.
