Peter McGrath represents UNC during coal-fired plant violation suit
Moore & Van Allen (MVA) Co-head of the Environmental practice, Peter McGrath represented the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill during the recent coal-fired power plants violation suit. The final judgement was highlighted in the recent Law360 article titled, “UNC Dodges Enviro Groups' Coal Emissions Suit” that was published on September 1.
The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill defeated environmental groups' claims that the school's operation of coal-fired power plants violated the Clean Air Act, with a Tarheel State federal judge finding the groups failed to show a concrete injury. In her final judgment Tuesday, U.S. District Judge Catherine C. Eagles granted UNC's motion for summary judgment against all nine claims lodged by the Center for Biological Diversity and the Sierra Club and dismissed the suit with prejudice.
