Supreme Court Review and Preview: NFIB v. Sebelius and Sackett v. EPA

December 2012

Citation: ELR 11091

Author: John C. Cruden, Laurence H. Tribe, and Richard J. Lazarus

Each October, the U.S. Supreme Court begins a new term. And each year, the Environmental Law Institute convenes a national seminar with some of the preeminent experts on the Supreme Court and environmental law to examine the potential significance for environmental law of both the Court’s rulings from its past term, as well as the cases already on the Court’s docket for its new term. This year’s panel, co-sponsored by Harvard Law School, was held on October 25, 2012, in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The panel discussed the Court’s ruling in National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius and its potential significance for environmental lawyers, likely rulings in a series of Clean Water Act cases decided last term and to be argued this term, and several other environmental cases pending before the Court.

John C. Cruden is President of the Environmental Law Institute (moderator). Laurence H. Tribe is the Carl M. Loeb University Professor at Harvard Law School. Richard J. Lazarus is the Howard J. and Katherine W. Aibel Professor of Law at Harvard Law School.
