BakerHostetler secures energy win at Tenth Circuit

News / September 22, 2017

On Sept. 21, 2017, BakerHostetler’s energy team, working on behalf of the two most important national trade associations representing independent oil and gas producers, earned a successful decision in the associations’ challenge to Obama-era federal rules meant to regulate hydraulic fracturing on federal and tribal lands.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit dismissed appeals seeking to overturn earlier rulings in favor of the independent producers, saying there is no point in continuing the court fight when the Trump administration has announced it will rescind the rules.
