In the Law360 article entitled, “Consumer Group Says Data Back Clean Car Standards,”  Morrison & Foerster’s  representation of the Consumer Federation of America is discussed.  In an amicus brief, the CFA told the D.C. Circuit that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency was hurting — not helping — consumers when it moved to reexamine an analysis that supported Obama-era vehicle greenhouse gas emission standards.  The CFA indicated that the EPA's decision in April to reject an Obama-era analysis would cost consumers money, adding that the agency misrepresented consumers' strong preference for fuel-efficient vehicles.

The CFA is represented by Morrison & Foerster partners Michael J.  Steel and Joseph R. Palmore.
