Murray Energy petitions US Supreme Court to review reversal of case against EPA

Murray Energy Corp. petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to review a lower court decision overturning an order for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to produce a jobs impact study showing how its regulations affect the coal industry.

In June, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 4th Circuit said the case, which was decided in favor of Murray, should not have been adjudicated by the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of West Virginia.

"The agency gets to decide how to collect a broad set of employment impact data, how to judge and examine this extensive data, and how to manage these tasks on an ongoing basis," the opinion stated. "A court is ill-equipped to supervise this continuous, complex process."

The appeals court vacated the district court's judgments and ordered the dismissal of Murray's suit "for want of jurisdiction."

Murray filed a writ of certiorari Sept. 27 and expects a response Nov. 1.
