Here’s the Supreme Court decision that overturned 40 years of precedent of Chevron U.S.A., Inc. v. NRDC, 467 U.S. 837 (1984):

What does this mean for those of us dealing with agencies streamlining, steamrolling, out the bad decisions, issuing permits that shouldn’t be issued, permits against the public interest?

Methinks the histrionics of this decision are overblown, and that it could prove to be a good thing for “us” and a problem for those agencies and the corporations, particularly utilities, that benefit from the unsupported agency decisions.

I’ve not really digested this… any comments out there? Those challenging agency decisions, what’s been the outcome of those challenges? What’s your guess regarding the outcome of decisions post-Loper?
