Briefs Filed in Appeals Court Suit Against FERC and ACP

The following briefs have been filed (to date) in the suit against the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) and Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP).

The Joint Opening Brief of Conservation Petitioners [including Friends of Nelson] and Landowner Petitioners, filed by the Southern Environmental Law Center (SELC) on April 5, 2019.

Briefs filed by parties that are challenging part or all of FERC’s certificate for the pipeline:

Amici curiae, or “friends of the court,” briefs in support of of the suit”

And one brief filed by ACP itself, challenging one element of FERC’s certificate:  Opening brief filed by Atlantic Coast Pipeline, LLC

(The addendum of statutes and regulations from several of these briefs was removed to make the file sizes more manageable.)

What happens next:  According to the SELC, FERC’s response brief is due on June 19, ACP’s response brief is due on June 26, and SELC’s reply brief is due on July 10, along with the reply briefs of their fellow petitioners. Oral argument will likely be scheduled for sometime in the fall.
