Let the Litigation Begin
The Water Keeper Alliance, acting on behalf of several environmental groups, today issued a press release that it has filed a 60-day notice to challenge the new WOTUS rule under the ESA. This appears to be the first of what will surely be multiple challenges to the rule. I have heard rumors that a group of states as well as at least three other environmental groups have complaints in the works. PLF is also in the wings with a possible suit to challenge the rule from the right. I'm glad I'm not a DOJ attorney right now. Below is a link to the notice.
