Ongoing litigation developments over the SEC’s climate rules

The latest is that the two fracking companies that filed the lawsuit in the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that resulted in a temporary stay granted by a three-judge panel in that court has now filed a request for a new administrative stay and a stay pending judicial review in the 8th Circuit, where the group of lawsuits over the SEC’s rules has been consolidated (as noted in this blog).

The 5th Circuit temporary stay was lifted when the lawsuits were consolidated in the 8th Circuit. So these two fracking companies seek for the SEC’s rules to be stayed again. “FOMOCLD” = “Fear of Missing Out on Climate Litigation Developments” is a real thing…
