NMMA Appeals Court Ruling on E15

NMMA filed an appeal with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to request a review of its August ruling on E15 that dismissed NMMA's challenge to the Environmental Protection Agency's waiver allowing E15 to be sold.

NMMA and a coalition of industry groups representing manufacturers of everything from automobiles to food, filed suit to block the waiver because of the damaging effects of allowing E15 into the U.S. fuel supply.

The ruling in August by a panel of three judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled 2-1 against NMMA and the coalition. The case was dismissed on procedural grounds, holding that the Petitioners lacked standing to sue and did not reach the merits of the case. 

Through its appeal, NMMA is asking for a review of the decision by all judges on the D.C. Circuit Court (called en banc).
