Oral Arguments in Tolling Case

On Monday April 27, 2020, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals will hold the oral argument in the case challenging FERC’s approval of the Atlantic Sunrise Project (Allegheny Defense Project v. FERC). The case considers the pervasiveness of FERC’s unjust tolling practice and how it has real effects on individuals and groups who are kept out of court while construction is allowed to proceed. The full D.C. Circuit will take up the issue of whether to put an end to this practice.

Monday’s argument will begin at 9:30 am, and each side will have 30 minutes. The argument will be held by phone, and the public can listen to the live-stream through the D.C. Circuit’s website by clicking on the arrow under Daily Calendar with Live Audio (on the left sidebar).
