Judge Kevin Brobson of the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania hit the brakes on a number of Chapter 78a Regulations promulgated by the Department of Environmental Protection’s environmental quality board (EQB) aimed at the oil and gas extraction industry. The decision was rendered in Marcellus Shale Coalition v. Department of Environmental Protection, No. 573 M.D. 2016. The Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) ­successfully secured a preliminary injunction upon application for expedited special relief staying the enforcement of several sections of the Chapter 78a Regulations, and, in the process, spared Pennsylvania oil and gas business and its economy from substantial additional compliance costs with a suite of regulations with little if any ­marginal environmental benefit.
