Government Agencies: Fracking Regulations Appeal At The 10th Circuit Not ‘Moot’

Mealey's (March 7, 2016, 11:03 AM EST) -- DENVER — The federal agencies sued by several states that object to new federal regulations on hydraulic fracturing filed a brief Feb. 19 in the 10th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals arguing that their appeal of a district court ruling is not “moot” and saying that the only thing delaying the appeal is the fracking companies’ “meritless” motion to dismiss (State of Wyoming, et al. v. Sally Jewell, et al., Nos. 15-8126 and 15-8134, 10th Cir.).
