"Clean Water Rule: Judge Blocks WOTUS In 11 States"

"A federal judge in Georgia on Friday granted 11 states' request for an order blocking implementation of the Obama administration's controversial Clean Water Rule.

Judge Lisa Godbey Wood of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Georgia agreed to halt the rule from taking effect in Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Indiana, Kansas, North Carolina, South Carolina, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Kentucky.

Wood wrote that the rule is likely unlawful and that the states would suffer irreparable harm absent an injunction."
