North Carolina v. EPA, No. 08-1225

By FindLaw Staff on November 24, 2009 | Last updated on March 21, 2019

North Carolina's petition for review of a final rule of the EPA removing the northern part of the State of Georgia from EPA's regulations under its national ambient air quality standard (NAAQS) for ozone measured during a one-hour period is dismissed, where reinstating Georgia under that standard would not lower Georgia's emissions and thus North Carolina failed to meet the redressability requirement for Article III standing.
