October 7, 2011 — AmLaw Litigation Daily; September 16, 2011 — Environment & Energy News

Crowell & Moring's representation of the National Mining Association was featured in Environment & Energy News and AmLaw Litigation Daily when the federal district court in Washington, D.C. ruled on behalf of the mining industry in a decision that said the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency unlawfully blocked more than 70 mountaintop removal projects.

According to the AmLaw Litigation Daily, "Judge Reggie Walton granted partial summary judgment to the National Mining Association, which claimed that the EPA overstepped its authority under the Clean Water Act to block the dumping of debris from mountaintop removal projects into local waterways."
