This month, the tangled legal saga of the Obama Administration’s 2015 Waters of the U.S. rule took a new turn. On January 13, 2017, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to decide a jurisdictional dispute involving which federal court should hear challenges to the rule.

The legal issues surrounding this are complex so we’re pleased that on Friday, The Hill published an op-ed analysis from our colleague Larry Liebesman. Larry, who spent 10+ years as an environmental litigator for the US Department of Justice, explains how the High Court’s action is likely to affect Congress and the Trump Administration.

This issue is especially timely since the case will be argued this term with a decision expected by June.
