WASHINGTON, D.C. - The U.S. Supreme Court on March 21 unanimously found that an Idaho couple could file a lawsuit challenging a compliance order issued by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Water Act (CWA) because the order was a final agency action that could be reviewed under the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) (Chantell Sackett, et al. v. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, No. 10-1062, U.S. Sup.; 2012 U.S. LEXIS 2320).
