Listen to the Podcast

This 44th episode of the Free Lunch Podcast brings you the audio from a recent teleforum co-hosted by the Regulatory Transparency Project and the Federalist Society’s Environmental Law & Property Rights Practice Group.

This episode deals with a pending lawsuit in the Western District of Washington: Lighthouse Resources v. Inslee. This case, which involves a dispute over permitting construction for a coal export terminal on Washington’s Columbia river, has important implications for disputes between federal and state jurisdiction in environmental law and regulation.
