Supreme Court Oral Arguments: Curt Anderson, et al v. DNR
The Wisconsin Supreme Court held oral arguments on November 3, 2010 in the case of Curt Anderson, et al v. DNR at the State Capitol. In this case, the Supreme Court examines issues arising from a dispute between environmental advocates and the state Department of Natural Resources (DNR) over re-issuing a wastewater discharge permit for paper manufacturing plant in Green Bay. The DNR now asks the Supreme Court to review whether an administrative permit review hearing is the appropriate forum for dispute over the application of federal law. A decision by the Supreme Court could have broad statewide implications for industries regulated by the permits.
