Natural Resources Defense Council v. National Highway Traffic Safety, 17-2780

Granted petition review and vacated defendant's suspension rule. Defendant sought to delay legislation requiring it to adjust civil penalties to account for inflation. Plaintiff claims that defendant exceeded its authority and violated the Administrative Procedures Act (APA). The Second Circuit agreed with plaintiff's reasoning that defendant has no authority to change or ignore an act of Congress and defendant failed to follow APA procedures.
