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.
