Western States urge dismissal of Oregon LCFS suit

By Argus Media

Portland, 18 August (Argus) — Oregon and the other Pacific coast states yesterday asked a federal judge to kill an industry lawsuit against its low-carbon fuel standard (LCFS), arguing the case is premature and contrary to recent court decisions.

Oregon, Washington and California in their briefs said the case should be dismissed in light of last week's decision by a federal judge in California to dismiss the remaining arguments in a refining industry lawsuit against that state's LCFS.
