Bob Nicksin Quoted in Law360 on EPA Aircraft Emissions Suit

May 02, 2016

O’Melveny partner Bob Nicksin was quoted in article, “EPA Aircraft Emissions Rules Far From Takeoff Despite Suit,” published in the May 2, 2016 edition of Law360.

The article discussed a Clean Air Act suit recently filed by two environmental groups seeking to speed the pace of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s efforts to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from airplanes. Nicksin said the lawsuit isn’t likely to accelerate the rulemaking process, although it might yield a timetable.

“There’s certainly a desire by the environmental groups to make sure they nail down some aviation regulations prior to any change in the executive branch or in Congress following the election,” Nicksin said.
