Judge Blocks Keystone XL Pipeline
The plain fact is that the Trump administration doesn’t believe the Obama administration, based on the available evidence, had a good reason to block TransCanada’s permit to build the Keystone XL pipeline. And so it lifted the block. This was a policy decision, not a legal one. The Obama administration had full authority not to grant the permit, and the Trump administration had full authority to lift it.

The environmental groups’ lawsuit, however, allowed Judge Morris, an Obama appointee, to reverse the Trump administration’s decision by appealing to the hopelessly nebulous “hard look” criterion—a criterion itself based on a district court judge’s interpretation of a 1970 statute. The judge, in other words, thought the Trump administration was making a bad policy decision, but rather than ruling that it has the authority to make a bad decision, he ruled that the decision isn’t in line with federal law, according to a mere phrase in an earlier district court decision.
