Brett Kavanaugh just got the good news he was waiting for
Brett Kavanaugh has been on the Supreme Court for just a couple of days.
But already the good news is pouring in.
And he just got the good news he was waiting for.
The Supreme Court announced it would uphold a Kavanaugh decision from the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals.
In 2017, Kavanaugh wrote the opinion striking down Obama’s job-killing global warming regulations.
The Supreme Court just announced they rejected an appeal of that ruling.
The Daily Caller reports:
The U.S. Supreme Court rejected attempts to appeal a lower court decision issued in 2017 striking down Obama-era global warming policies. The lower court’s ruling was written by the newly confirmed Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The justices privately made the decision to not rehear the case before Kavanaugh joined the high court Tuesday, Reuters reported. Kavanaugh was officially sworn in as an associate justice at the White House on Monday night.
Kavanaugh’s 2017 decision for the D.C. Circuit Court struck down Obama administration regulations on hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), a greenhouse gas, because such rules ran afoul of federal law.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) imposed regulations on HFCs in 2015 as part of the U.S.’s plan to fight global warming through the Montreal Protocol. HFCs are a greenhouse gas, but are not ozone-depleting chemicals.
Liberal groups stewed.
When Kavanaugh was going through his confirmation, they pointed to rulings like this as evidence he would be a danger to the radical left-wing agenda.
Conservatives are hoping they are correct.
