Policy, but what now: The GCR Section 5 Roundtable
September 8, 2015 — Global Competition Review

Washington, D.C.-based Antitrust Group senior counsel, Lisa Kimmel, shares her perspective on the Federal Trade Commission's published guidance on Section 5 authority during a roundtable discussion hosted by Global Competition Review. "In my view, by tying section 5 enforcement to likely competitive harm, it doesn't go beyond what the commission has stated in other documents ... so I don't expect any practical change in how the agency approaches enforcement," Kimmel said.

Supreme Court Could Hear Challenge to EPA Rule on Emissions
October 2, 2014 — The Indianapolis Star

Washington, D.C.-based partner and steering committee member of the Environment & Natural Resources Group, Kirsten L. Nathanson, discusses a challenge to a federal rule cutting toxic emissions from power plants, which is one of the issues facing the Supreme Court this term. The federal rule in question limits toxic pollution, such as mercury, from coal- and oil-fired power plants, and is being appealed but 23 states and industry groups. Nathanson argues that, "The regulated community believes it was completely irrational and inappropriate for EPA to ignore the high cost," adding, "we will see if the Supreme Court latches onto it."

EPA High Court Wins Leave Openings For Industry Challenges
September 18, 2014 — Law360

Washington, D.C.-based Environment & Natural Resources Group partner and steering committee member, Kirsten L. Nathanson, speaks with Law360 regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's decisions last term upholding much of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's cross-state air pollution and greenhouse gas regulations. Nathanson notes that while this year's term doesn't have as many environment-specific cases, the non-environment cases of Perez v. Mortgage Bankers Association and Nickols v. Mortgage Bankers Association would have an impact across federal agencies including the EPA, the Army Corps of Engineers, and others. "The key issue in the case involves an agency's ability to change its mind — and to change its mind on the interpretation of its own regulations, and to do so without having to go through notice and comment," Nathanson said.

Lawyers Weigh In On Supreme Court's Aereo Ruling
June 25, 2014 — Appellate, IP, and Media & Entertainment Law360

The U.S. Supreme Court on June 25 ruled that online television streaming service Aereo Inc. violates copyright law by retransmitting over-the-air programming without authorization. John Stewart, IP partner in the firm's Washington, D.C., office and co-head of the firm's member of the firm's global TLD and Domain Name Practice, tells Law360 why the decision in American Broadcasting Companies Inc. v. Aereo Inc. is significant. "America's unique system of free broadcasting provides unparalleled programming service. The Copyright Act carefully balanced the interests of creators, distributors and viewers to sustain this service. The court's decision was plainly driven by the transparency of Aereo's attempts to evade Congress's balance. Even the dissent agrees it 'ought not to be allowed.' The court's opinion reinforces the balance, without impinging on new methods of program delivery developed in cooperation with content owners. The court's analysis of the Transmit Clause and users' prior rights in stored content may affect the remand on Aereo's delayed-transmission services, notwithstanding prior court of appeals decisions."

EPA's Selenium Decision Will Transform Coal War
August 30, 2013 — Law360

Kirsten L. Nathanson, a Washington, D.C.-based partner in the firm's Environment, Energy & Resources Group, shares her perspective on the upcoming U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) decision on the state of Kentucky's proposed water-quality standard for selenium. The article notes that the deadline for the agency to make a decision on Kentucky's plan has already passed, but the EPA has said it has not yet concluded its review. It is anticipated that there will be litigation over the agency's decision. Nathanson remarks, "I would have a hard time seeing this not end up in the courts in one form or another. There's a lot of money at stake and there's been so much energy put into this issue by all sides. I can't imagine EPA's approval or rejection would be the final word."

9th Circ. Stormwater Flip Should Catch High Court's Eye
August 12, 2013 — Law360

Kirsten L. Nathanson, a Washington, D.C.-based partner in the firm's Environment, Energy & Resources Group, is quoted in this article regarding a recent Ninth Circuit ruling on stormwater pollution that is anticipated to be reviewed by the U.S. Supreme Court. Nathanson notes, "By nature of it being a Ninth Circuit environmental opinion that has achieved the liability determination and worked its way around a Supreme Court decision, I could certainly see it catching attention. Justice Scalia made his views clear at oral argument."
