"EPA Win Streak the Lone Bright Spot in a Tough Term for Obama"

"While the Supreme Court dealt President Obama some heavy blows this term, the administration largely got what it wanted on environmental policy.

The two highest-profile environmental cases -- the challenge to U.S. EPA's greenhouse gas regulations and the assault on the agency's regime for air pollution drifting across state lines -- produced what were arguably the administration's biggest wins in the term that ended last week.

'I would have to say that EPA had a quite good Supreme Court term,' said Willy Jay, a former Department of Justice attorney now at Goodwin Procter LLP."
