In other Supreme Court News... Am. Elec. Power v. CT

It might get lost in the Wal-Mart shuffle, but don't ignore another federal courts case from today, American Electric Power v. Connecticut.  As usual, SCOTUSblog has good links to the opinion, lower court opinions, and commentary.

"Holding: The Clean Air Act and Environmental Protection Agency actions displace federal common law public nuisance claims brought by several states, the city of New York, and three private land trusts against four private power companies and the federal Tennessee Valley Authority over global warming and carbon dioxide emissions."
