Is this a first?
SCOTUS in a 9-0 decision FOR “the little guy” against the government? 9-0!
Mind you, this was not a decision OF THE CASE, but it was against the government’s being able to just oppress the citizen through senseless dominion vs reasoned intent.
Thus, the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Sackett v. EPA should not only be viewed as a significant victory for those parties seeking pre-enforcement challenges to unilateral administrative orders but, also, particularly in light of the Court’s broad language, it has the potential to change EPA’s paradigm of “strong-arming” parties by issuing such unilateral orders and then waiting for the penalties to pile up before seeking to enforce its order.
Remember in November.
