August 23, 2023 – Clinic Faculty Director Andrew Mergen spoke with Harvard Law professor and Environmental & Energy Law Program (EELP) founding director Jody Freeman on a CleanLaw Podcast episode about a case the US Supreme Court will hear this fall, Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo, in which petitioners have asked the Court to overrule the Chevron doctrine—a legal doctrine that governs when a court should defer to an agency’s interpretation of a law.  They discuss how the Supreme Court might cabin or overrule the Chevron doctrine, and what the case might mean for other environmental regulations and federal regulation more broadly.
