In a hit to the Trump administration, the Supreme Court unanimously ruled Monday that cases litigating the Clean Water Act should be heard by federal district courts.

ADMINISTRATION — 1H 49M AGO

ADMINISTRATION — 1H 51M AGO

The administration had argued those cases should be heard in federal appeals courts.

The Supreme Court agreed to hear the case over an Obama-era regulation, known as the Waters of the United States rule, back in January 2017, after debate as to whether the U.S. Court of Appeals or federal district courts had the authority to hear the lawsuits from industry groups and states that say the rule went too far.

Dozens of parties had iled lawsuits over the regulation in both federal appeals courts and district courts.

Industry groups involved, led by the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), argued that under the Clean Water Act, lower

district courts should irst hear the challenges, which can then be

ADMINISTRATION — 2H 46M AGO

The Trump administration, on the other hand, said the challenges were legally within the purview of appeals courts because the rule touched on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) permitting authority.
