Ted Lamm, Sean Hecht

In an amicus brief filed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in American Lung Association v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Sean Hecht and Berkeley Law's Ted Lamm argue the Affordable Clean Energy Rule is directly opposed to what Congress intended, and said, when it crafted the Clean Air Act.

Their client, Tom Jorling, is a renowned Clean Air Act expert who served as a staffer on the Senate committee that drafted and negotiated the pivotal 1970 amendments that form today’s law.
