Van Ness Feldman Quoted in Energy Washington Week Article on Connecticut v. AEP

September 29, 2009

An Energy Washington Week article on the recent United States Second Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on Connecticut v. American Electric Power Corp, et al., quoted Van Ness Feldman's September 24 Issue Alert.  The Alert states, “Because Connecticut held that only a GHG program directly addressing plaintiffs injuries would displace a common law claim, Connecticut may spur Congress to ensure a broader program covering more GHG sources than would otherwise be the case. On the other hand, Congress may respond by statutorily barring claims such as those brought by the Connecticut plaintiffs.”
