Brigid Shea Lawsuit

This 24-page file obtained from the Travis County District Clerk’s office is the record of a lawsuit in which Brigid Shea, as next friend on behalf of Eamon Brennan Umphress, a minor child, was one of the plaintiffs suing the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The lawsuit seeks to overturn the TCEQ's decision to deny the plaintiffs’ petition for rulemaking to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in the state and mandate tracking of such reductions. A final hearing on the merits is scheduled for June 11, 2012.
