Jody Freeman and Andrew Mergen Op-Ed: Will the Supreme Court Show a Little Humility?

Environmental & Energy Law Program Founding Director and HLS Professor Jody Freeman and Emmett Environmental Law and Policy Clinic Director Andrew Mergen wrote an op-ed for the New York Times on how two cases argued at the Supreme Court yesterday could restrict the authority of federal agencies and upend decades of precedent.

“Overturning the well-established Chevron framework would invite litigation over virtually every decision, big and small, that agencies must make in their day-to-day work, decisions that are in part legal, but which also call for expert policy judgments.”
