Nearly Half The Country Is Suing Donald Trump
By Valerie Volcovici


WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Twenty-two states, including New York and California, and seven cities on Tuesday sued to challenge the Environmental Protection Agency’s replacement of the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan, arguing it prolongs U.S. reliance on coal power and obstructs states that pursue cleaner electricity generation.

The petition filed in a federal appellate court in Washington calls for the rule to be vacated. The petitioners argue that the EPA’s Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule, which it finalized in June, will not curb rising carbon emissions from power plants and will prolong the operation of dirtier coal plants .

“Without significant course correction, we are careening towards a climate disaster,” New York Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement announcing the lawsuit, adding that the coalition of states and cities “will fight back against this unlawful, do-nothing rule.”


The lawsuit is one of dozens undertaken by Democratic-led states to challenge the Trump administration’s series of rollbacks of major rules in the energy sector aimed at easing regulatory burdens for industry.

4. This is his favorite stall.

Sue, keep people tied up in court until they run out of money. Only now, we are paying for these shenanigans time after time all the way up to and including the Supreme Court. He plays this very well and he must be thrilled that somebody else is paying.

5. Trump being sued or Trump sueing is the only language he understands.
