State of Connecticut, et al. v. American Electric Power Company, Inc., et al. and Open Space Institute, et al. v. American Electric Power Company, Inc., et al.
On July 6, 2007, the parties to a Second Circuit appeal of the dismissal of two global warming public nuisance lawsuits filed letter briefs arguing the effect of the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Massachusetts v. Environmental Protection Agency, et al., 127 S.Ct. 1438 (2007). The letter briefs were requested by the Second Circuit because they determine whether dismissal of those cases by the District Court as nonjudicable political questions was proper.
