Gray Davis v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
On July 17, 2003, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) wrongly denied California’s request for a waiver of the federal reformulated gasoline (RFG) program’s oxygenated gasoline requirement.
