Chamber of Commerce v. EPA   (10th Circuit)

Jurisdictional issue in challenge to Waters of the US rule

The NAM filed an amicus brief in the 10th Circuit on July 8, 2016 supporting an appeal of a judge's ruling that challenges to the EPA's rule establishing jurisdiction over waters of the United States should be heard in appellate courts. This 10th Circuit case was placed in abeyance pending the Supreme Court’s consideration of NAM v. U.S. Dep't of Defense. On January 22, 2018, the Supreme Court ruled in the NAM's favor in that case that challenges to the rule must be brought in federal district courts. The 10th Circuit thereafter remanded the case back to the district court.
